Combine Orbi RBR750 and Orbi RBR50

I was using an Orbi RBR 50 mesh system, but recently bought an RBR750 for the WiFi 6. 

 

Is there a way to use my older Orbi mesh system as satellites for the new system?

 

Thanks in advance.

RBS50s are not compatible wirelessly right now. NG is supposidly going to make them compatible. No idea IF or when that will happen. You can wire connect the RBS to the Orbi RBR.

Is there a way to make them act like the same network through wire connection?

Once you wire them together, they will sync normally and all will appear as one network.
