RBK44-100NA Updates on the Max Number of Satellites

I have purchased the ORBI RBK44-100NA Whole home Wi-Fi system (8,000 Sq Ft) system. I have deployed with 3 satellites and they are just not enough for the size  /  construction of the home. The home is just over 10,000 Sq Ft and has alot of stone work. Looking for a updated answer to the max number of satellites. We would also like to place one in the pool/spa room and an additional one outside by the docks. I really need 5-6 satellites to make this work correctly. Please advise.  We are not gaming or streaming much at this time. 

Thank you

Others have mentioned having 6 satellites. That was on a 50 series. I presume the 40 series would work as well. 30 feet is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

WOW Only 30 feet between the devices. I have rooms that are over 40 feet.  Not sure how they can cover 8000 Sq Ft at 30 ft apart.  I really just want a solid solution that is consistent without the ups and downs.  Thank you for your response. I will try and add a few more satellites and see what happens. 

 

I will provide details once I have tested.

Have a Super day.

30 ft is the recommended starting distance. We've seen users post with distances beyond that. 50 and 60 feet.

 

Is this for a home?
