AX 4200 RBS750 - Additional satellite to connect wirelessly to another satellite?

I have just installed a router + 2 satelittes and this is not enought to cover my entire house. I would lke to know if I can just add another satellite but WITHOUT wiring it, i.e. if it can just connect to another satellite over WIFI to extend the range.

 

ANswer from support suggests that it is possible but I need to know for sure...

Brick and concrete will be problematic for any wifi system. Hopefully it will work ok for you. You can ethernet connect the RBS as well:

Yes you can.

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

Re: AX 4200 RBS750 - Additional satellite to connect wirelessly to another satellite?

thank you. 

House is about 5000sqf and building material brick, concrete

Sounds like adding a satellite through a daisy chain should do the trick. I've ust ordered another satellite. Thanks for the tip (i just learned what a daisy chain is...) and I'll report the result here for 

Cheers, JSF
