Additional Satellite for RBK53S Orbi Mesh System

I currently have an ORBI RBK53S Mesh network with 1 Router and 2 Satellites.

 

I want to purchase ONE additional satellite to extend my networks range.   What is the best ORBI extender to purchase for this system?   I do not want any compatability problems.

 

Thank you.

You can add another RBS50 to extend the range.  I have the same system and added a RBS20 and have the whole house and backyard covered on a 6100 sq ft corner lot.

RBS40v, RBS50 work. Also EX7500, 7700 or 8000 can work as alternatives.

Where can I find the item you recommended with just the Satellite unit?   All the systems I find online have the Router and the Satellite.  I do not need another router.  Just the satellite extension.

Yes but I cannot find a product that is JUST the satellite unit.  They all have the Router and the Satellite.

EBay has several.  Some from eBay shops that have a return guarantee if not satisfied within 30 days.  I purchased my RBS20 from eBay.
