Ring devices not connecting to closest satellite

I have an Orbi mesh RBK753S. I have installed 2 Ring outdoor stick up cams, and one ring floodlight/cam. They are all hardwired/plugged in. At first they connected to the closest satellite, and worked great. Now they connect to the router only, and the connection is terrible. How do I get them to connect to the satellite that is 20 feet away, versus the router that is 60 plus feet away with many walls in between?

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Orbi - NETGEAR Communities

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

Re: Ring devices not connecting to closest satellite

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

 

Try turning down the power output of the RBRs wifi radios from 100% to 50% and see if this changes anything then reboot the RBR. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings
