How many satellites for RBR20?


How many satellites for RBR20?

I don't know the difference between the various RBRXX routers but I have an RBR20 Orbi router and 1 satellite.  How many satellites can it handle and which model(s) should I order?

Model: RBR20|Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi Router

Re: How many satellites for RBR20?

Some other posters have said that they have had up to 6 RBS 50s on there 1 RBR. Not sure if this would still work for the 20 series. RBS20 would be perferred use with the RBR20. 


30 feet is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected. https://kb.netgear.com/000036466/How-far-should-I-place-my-Orbi-satellite-from-my-Orbi-router
