Orbi Ethernet Backhaul

Orbi Ethernet Backhaul

Hello,  I have the Orbi RBR40 router with 1 satelitte that is currently connected through wifi.  The Satelitte is not getting a strong signal due to the layout of the house (concrete, walls etc...).  I attempted to move it to a different location and the weak signal continued.  The satelitte is in a part of the house where extended range is needed. Would hardwiring the satelitte from the router improve the satelitte's signal?

How many Sq Ft is your home? Depending on size and layout, you have 2 options:

1: Add another satellite

2: Hardwire the satellite and you will get good coverage around the satellite broadcast area.
