Using a non orbi wired access point with RBK852

I want to add a wireless access point into my network with the same SSID and password as my Orbi.

 

The device would be connected to my router Orbi via the appropriate cable but I am wondering if I am likely to have any conflicts with the Orbi wireless network.

 

Would I be better to buy another Orbi satelite?

 

Thanks in advance!!

If it was me, I'd buy another orbi. You can do as you're wanting but it won't integrate into your orbi system. Your AP should be using a different wireless channel for 2.4ghz/5ghz if its a separate AP (non orbi) to prevent interference.  Plus devices won't roam as efficiently as its not integrated.
