Buying additional RBS20 satellites for CBK40?

I rcenlty bought the new 2018 RBK40 mesh kit (which included 1 CBR40 modem/router combo and 1 RBS20 satellite).

 

Id like to eventually add an additional satellite. 

 

Can I buy an additional RBS20? Can they be purchased individually, or must I buy a different satellite model?

 

What is the difference between the RBS20, RBS40 and RBS50 models?

Re: Buying additional RBS20 satellites for CBK40?

Yes, you can. I would suggest only using up to 3 satellites. 

 

You find spec info here about each system.

https://www.netgear.com/orbi/systems.aspx

Scroll down to towards the bottom of the page for each model to see spec info. 

 

Mostly the 50 series is (1733 + 866 + 400Mbps)

The 40 series is (866+866+400Mbps)
