Re: orbi

I'm afraid I don't understand the problem, but I do know that there is a better place to ask about Orbi kit.

Re: orbi

What kind of print servers - make, model, firmware, ...?


Any kind of however manageable Netgear switch supporting STP, and with STP enabled?


And last but not least - why _two_ RBR53 - for the same network?

Re: orbi

Try setting a static IP address ON your print server devices out side the routers DHCP IP adress pool You may need to change the RBRs IP address pool from thru .254 to thru.200. This leaves room for static IP addressed devices on either side of the pool.
