Can’t sync RBK 50

I purchased a second satellite for my RBK 50 system, and can't get the new satellite to sync. Can someone help me with this.

Re: Can’t sync RBK 50

I am using the Orbi App, for adding a satellite. I purchased the satellite from Amazon, it a refurbished one. I push the sync button on the router, and let the light flash for a short period which means it’s ready to sync, then push the sync button on the satellite, it flashes like its trying to sync, but after the period of syncing is over, the light is still white. I don’t want to reset the original set to factory specs, because it may just be the issue with the newer satellite I’m trying to add.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Re: Can’t sync RBK 50

Can you please describe how you are trying to sync the new satellite?

  • Using the "sync" button method?
  • Using the Orbi web interface (http://orbilogin.net), the bottom menu item: "Add Orbi Satellite"?

I usually start by pressing the "sync" button on the satellite, then on the router.
