Motorola Modem MB8611 Will Not Work with Orbi

Does anyone know if there are any modem's Orbi will not work with? I am having issues with the modem whenever I connect my router. If I connect a laptop to the modem everything works great. But once I connect my router the modom loses its connection to the internet. Sometimes the modem will bounce off and on. I have tried too many variations to list on when I power on the router. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please post about this over in the Orbi AC forum for the RBK50 series system:


Be sure to power off both modem and RBR for 15 seconds then back ON. 


Thank you.
