Yes, you can add more satellites.  Contributors to the forum talk about having 4 or more satellites. 

I love my Orbi.

Re: AC3000 RBK50

The "official" mximum number of Satellites is 3. So one Router and 3 Satellites.

This is not a hard limit, so you can add more Satellites. I saw that up to 5 satellites were used. The thing is that at a certain point the more Satellites you connect to the system the lower performance you will get from your network. That's why the recommended number of Sateliites is set to max 3.

I remember 1 user reporting having 6 satellites. Not sure that would be recommended though.
