RBR 850 how to Daisy chain

I am looking to daisy chain a satellite 850 to another satelite 850 vs going to the main router.  Looking to increase my range.  Its my understanding that this is possible, but looking to get insight on how to set up.  Thanks, Steve

I believe that the 850 automatically will determine if daisy chain is necessary to implement.  Please try it and let us know.

Re: RBR 850 how to Daisy chain

Placement is key. 30 feet or more in between the RBR and RBS. Recommend to place each RBS out a distance in a line from each other. Then turn ON the nearest RBS closest to the RBR and let it sync. Onces it's synced, turn ON the next RBS out from the RBS thats now online and synced. Same thing if you have a 3rd RBS. Check the RBRs web page to ensure all RBS are online and connected. Check the Orbi app to see the daisy chain RBS configuration. There will be a line from the RBR to the RBS to the next RBS connected in the chain seen on the app.

Chuck_M. You were right. I just needed to set up the 2nd satellite with the main router then move it to the desired location. It automatically daisy chained. Perfect solution. No more dead spot in my back bedroom. Thanks!!
