Orbi Ultra-Performance Mesh WiFi System RBK853 AX6000 Ethernet Backhaul with Gigabit Switch

When using a gigabit switch with the Orbi Ultra-Performance Mesh WiFi System RBK853 / AX6000, do I need a switch dedicated to the Orbi backhaul, or can I connect them into the same switch that all the other network devices are connected into?

Normally, the same switch will work just fine.

 

I say normally because there are some "green" switches that may pose issues.

The switch is a NETGEAR 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS116NA).

You should be good with this switch. V1s I don't see any green ethernet. 

Give it a try and see how it goes. https://kb.netgear.com/000051205/What-is-Ethernet-backhaul-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-on-my-Orbi-WiFi-Sy...
