How to manually control backhaul connection ORBAC2200

How can I manually control the backhaul connection between satellites and router, when they connect automatically I suffer from dropouts very often because satellites keeps on changing backhaul connection between each other and the router, I can't change their location because of certain constraints and I can't turn off daisy-chain because not all of the satellites can reach the router, so after may attempts I ended up with 2 options, manually control the backhaul connection then I can force them to connect the right way and never change, or go for a new more powerful system with a router and 1 satellite only to avoid such situation.

This isn't enough information to offer advice.  How many satellites total?  Normally, once they configure themselves, they stay that way.

The ONLY way to "guarantee" how an Orbi network is configured is to run ethernet cables. (A task that most of us find impractical.)

- I have 2 satellites and 1 Orbi Voice satellite, they are 30 feet or a little bit more from each other.

Not the case with me at all, they change frequently and router itself is restarting multiple times a day randomly.

This is not an option for me, my 2 floors home is not wired.

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
Users can't control the wireless backhaul, its not user configurable. 

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 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

 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?
