Older Wifi Devices Not Connecting to Orbi Wifi 6

Orb Wifi 6 - Orbi AX6000 Tri-band Mesh WiFi 6 System

Model: RBK852

 

I have an older Insignia Google Home device that connects fine to my older Wifi Router but won't connect to the Orbi Wifi 6.  Any suggestions for configuration that allow older devices to connect?

Yes, I posted in the other forum as directed.  I increased the CTS/RTS Threshold  to 2347.

You are more likely to get an informed response by posting in the community forum for the WiFi 6 (AX) product line:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi-AX/bd-p/en-home-orbi-ax 

Those of us who watch this forum mostly have the residential WiFi5 products.

Sorry.

I love my Orbi.

Any progress on this? 

Are you using the same SSID name and PW as what you used on your prior router?

And did this resolved your issue? Looks like it.
