Wifi 6E satellite with Wifi 6 router

Hello,

I have the Orbi RBR850 router with some RBS850 satellites (all Wi-Fi 6). I need to add one more satellite to extend coverage to an extension of my house. Would one of the new WIFi 6E satellites work (Orbi RBSE960)? A friend has an extra, so it would be great if I could use it. Or do I need to stick with the 850 series?

Thank you!

Best,

Celia

Orbi 9 series is not compatible with Orbi AX series.

@FURRYe38 has personal experience with both the 850 and 960 products and his answer is correct.  Satellites from the 850 and 960 product lines are not interchangable. Nothing can be "fixed".

ah, I see now.  A hidden link to an irrelevant link.  Shame, shame.
