Orbi Placement


Orbi Placement

I want to use this with my tivo mini which needs to be plugged into an ethernet cable, so I have to place the second unit near the tivo which would be about 40 feet from the main unit with one wall between the two.  Can the orbi handle that?  


Also when do you expect the release the extra satellite--I would guess I need one extra?

Hello Jason-8


Yes this should handle this just fine as for extra satellite that is coming at a later date.

hi jason 


40 feet is about the optinum distance between router and sat as the backhaul will connect to just about its max at that distance
