Hi, Is there a limit to the number of RBS50 satellites that can be connected to one RBR50 router?  My kit came with one router and two satellites.

Users have reported as many as six satellites on one Orbi router.  Apparently there is a "trick" when adding more than three satellites.

The web page only allows for three, so one satellite must be powered off.

The new satellite can then be added, and the existing satellite powered on again.

For the fifth satellite, two must be powered off.  New one added. Then the two powered on again.

etc.

Caveat: I have only one satellite.  I read about this method in a forum post.
