Can I use my old RBS 20 satellite with my WiFi6 Router

I just upgraded to the Orbi WiFi6 system and am trying to get my old RBS 20 satellite to pair with the system but it is not coming up when I’m trying to link. Is it comparable with my new router?

I have no personal knowledge, but every time this question has been asked, the answer has been, "Netgear says this will be possible, but has not delivered yet."  In other words.  No Can Do.  (yet, if ever)  Scan a couple of pages of the forum posts and there will be posts about this topic.

I love my Orbi.

No they are not currently compatible. 

 

NG is supposed to make RBS50s compatible at some point in the future. NG did not mention if they were doing to make ALL RBS models compatible. No time frame on when this will happen.

 

Be sure to review posts over in the Orbi AX forum:

Good Luck.
