Can I use two RBS50 in 1 RBR50?

Hi All,

 

So I bought two RBK50 systems. Each system comes with 1 RBR50 (router) and 1 RBS50 (satellite). My question is, is it possible to use the 2 RBS50 to connect to the 1 RBR50? Or are the RBS50 paired only to the RBR50 that came together in the pack? Addittionally, can i setup the other 1 RBR50 as another satellite making the entire system as 1 router (RBR50) and 3 Satellites (2 RBS50 + 1 RBR50). Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

you can have the 2 RBS50s as satellites for one of the RBR50s.

 

The 2nd RBR50 however cannot be used as satellite.

Thanks for the quick reply. Can the 2nd RBR50 be used in AP mode?

Hi MStech, yes this is possible but please see @ekhalil ’s wise comments in this thread: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Orbi-Router-as-a-wired-satellite-access-point-from-another/m-p...

Additionally you can add more satellites... I bought the same pack as you and recently added a third satellite... works great.
