Compatible Satellites for the RBK50 Router

Hi Folks,

 

I have had my RBK50 Router with 1 Satellite Extender for over a year and have been super happy. 

Recently, I have had to move the Satellite upstairs due to moving rooms (and wanting to wire the TV, PS4 and Apple TV) and now I get very poor Wi-Fi in the Garden (10-20 and it will sometimes drop completely). Previously, the Satellite was in the room looking over the garden and I would get Wi-Fi speeds of up to 300mb. 

So, I need a new Satellite to place downstairs to ensure good Wi-Fi in the Garden for work, streaming videos, gaming etc...

 

All of the RBS50 Satellites I have found are quite expensive and mostly used. Are there any later model satellites I can use with my RBK50 Router at all? 

 

Many thanks in advance for all help.

Hello Burakiosaurus,

 

The RBK50 naming convention refers to a router and satellite mesh system. Your system contains two devices, one is a router also known as the RBR50. The other is a satellite that is known as the RBS50. The link you have is correct. However, please see the link below for our official support page.

Hi Kevin,

 

It is this model that I own:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/NETGEAR-Ultimate-System-Satellite-Extender/dp/B01KVRRSNI?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th... 

 

 

Amazon describe it as "NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (RBK50) | Router with 1 Satellite Extender | Coverage up to 4,000 sq. ft. and 25+ Device |MESH AC3000 (Upto 3Gbps)"

 

 

Is that the same as the RBR50 you mention?

Thank you for the clarification Kevin. 

 

Picked up an extra RBS50 and it's now 300mbs wifi in the garden again.
