Re: Rbk750 and rbs750

Any RB(K)it mean that there is 1 RBR### router and 1 or more RBS### satellite included in the box set. So yes any RBS750 from a RBK7 series kit will work with a RBR750.

30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

Thanks for the swift reply, so I can add 2 extra satellites cool.

 

the main reason for asking the difference is I was thinking of buy 2 of these, but wasn't 100% they were satellites, it says they are in the description but the K in Rbk threw me

Just be aware that the RBR can not operate like a RBS. It only supports router mode or ethernet connected AP mode that would be connected to a host router upstream from it and would not integrate into another Orbi mesh system.

So best to get rbs for WiFi connection. 

basically putting one in a garden room to give it WiFi. I've ran Ethernet from the garden room to my garage, plan on putting a satellite in the garage to connect wirelessly to the orbi router, then connecting the Ethernet to another satellite in the garden room. 

 Would connect the garage satellite to the orbi router by Ethernet but it would be a nightmare getting it there

I believe that should work. I haven't tried RBS ethernet connected to another RBS.
