Limit Connections to an Orbi Satellite?

Limit Connections to an Orbi Satellite?

Hi!  I watned to see if there's a way to limit connections to the satellite.  In my case, the satellite is off in my den primarily to support an XBox and a computer that I can't physically wire and that are far enough away that performance (without the satellite) is relatively poor.  I don't mind other devices from the room (mobile phones, etc) connecting to the main router.


For example, can the satellite be setup to use a different wifi name / password, so all existing devices go through the router except for the devices I select to go through the satellite?

Re: Limit Connections to an Orbi Satellite?

The MESH system is designed and meant for automatic connections based on your location and device support and signals and such using a single SSID name and PW system. Everything is fairly automatic in MESH systems.
