Which additional satellite for RBK753

Hi,

I have an RBK753 - 1 router and 2 satellites via Ethernet backhaul. I would like an additional satellite. Do I have to get an RBS750 or can I get something else that will integrate with my mesh system? So that I can use the orbi app with it etc.

An additional 750 satellite retails at about £250 so not sure If it’s worth me getting this or not?

RBS 7 or 8 series work. 

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: Which additional satellite for RBK753

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. 4000 square feet - however the internal walls are all brick so the signal can drop quite quickly.

The router is in the middle of the house. The 2 satellites are in 2 of the corners. Distance wise this is around 40ft. But they are both connected via Ethernet to the router.
