ORBI RBS20 compatible with an RBK43 system?

Is the RBS20 compatible with an RBK43 system? Where the RBK43 consists of 1 RBR40 and 2 RBS40 devices.

 

Reason for asking is that I would like to add existing WiFi to ethernet devices, and I’d prefer to keep everything on the same SSID.

Would the addition of 1 or 2 RBS20 satellites to existing RBK43 system have a detrimental influence of the RBK43 system? Or, would it improve RBK43 system, while at the same time add extra ethernet ports?

 

I believe the RBS20 satellite’s have 2 ethernet ports per device, which would suit the need perfectly.

 

Thanks, and best regards

Ther RBS20 units are all the same so they will work just fine. Others have posted having up to 6 satellites on there systems, however NG only recommends 3 or 4 I believe. Be sure the distance between the router and satellites are starting at 30feet minimum.
