a new satellite from other sales region

just moved from US to Europe and brought the RBK23 with us, can I buy a new satellite here from a local seller? I believe the they have different versions, RBK23-100PES and RBK23-100NAS? will this combination have problem?

Re: a new satellite from other sales region

Your issues will be:

1. Region setting. Each region has their own setting for wireless regulations and usage. the US ones have the region locked. You can change it but it'll take a little effort on  your part. There's multiple posts in the forums. Read a few of them to see if thats within your capabilities and if so, you should be good. Here's one for example.

2. Power supply. The EU uses a different power standard. You can either get a different power supply or an adapter as I think most power supplies will take the EU power but just needing the plug adapter.

Once the regions changed, you should be able to add the satellite without issues. *should* being key word.

You may not even to change the region, although it is probably a good idea.

 

Someone sent me an Orbi satellite from the USA. It worked OK with "native" UK stuff.
