Orbi Satellite RBS50

I have had RBS50 for sometime now like 2-3 years. I have 3 satellites usually connected wirelessly without a single issue. Now I have created a new underground room and connected it using ethernet to one of the satellites (i moved it there). the satellite keeps disconnecting every minute or so. I notice it more when I connect my iphone to it. All devices on firmware v2.7.3.22 any ideas?.

Re: Orbi Satellite RBS50

Is the RBS connected to the back of the RBR or another RBS? 

What CAT# lan cable is being used? CAT6 is recommended. 

Did you first sync the RBS to the RBR wirelessly, then after thats synced, plug in the RBS via ethernet cable?

Re: Orbi Satellite RBS50

As a quick test, does the one RBS connect to the RBR and sync ok? 

 

Wondering if wiring to another RBS maybe a problem.

Unfortunately, the problem still persists. I think i will have a technician to come look at the wiring.
