RBK853 AX6000 - Can I use an RBS 50 satellite to extend this network?

Hi folks,

I have a hunch I know the answer, but I'll give it a go.

 

I already have an RBR50 and two RBS50 satellites which work well, but I've decided to upgrade to the RBK853, which arrives tomorrow.

 

Can I extend the RBK853's network (albeit with diminished performance) using one of the RBS50s?

 

I could connect the RBS50 using ethernet if necessary.

 

I guess I just wondered if the 'new' mesh would accept that earlier model..?

 

Hope you can help.

 

Best wishes

 

NN

No at the moment. No idea if or when NG will make prior 50 series compatible wirelessly. You can connect them wired ethernet however.

Well, that's doable.

 

Will it be seen as the same SSID and handover to the other devices in the mesh if connected by ethernet?
