RBR750

Can I connect to my surveilance console system? I need ethernet and not not want to drill hole in the walls to make this connection.

Re: RBR750

This question requires more detail.  What is this surveillance console system?

Is the problem that this equipment has an Ethernet jack but does not support WiFi?

Security system is Lorex. It is not WiFi compatible. It is hard wired in. I would like to connect to the Orbi which would talk to the Orbi router which would be connected to the WiFi Router. (bridge)

Re: RBR750

If I understand correctly

  • The Lorex console is in one location
  • There are no Orbi units in that location
  • The goal is to access the Lorex console from other locations

One solution is to install some product next to the Lorex console that will:

  • Provide an Ethernet jack to connect to the Lorex console, and
  • Connect to the Orbi system over WiFi.

Many models of "WiFi Extender" can do this. For example, the Netgear EX3700 https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/datasheet/en/EX3700.pdf

The EX3700 is available on Amazon for under $30US.
