How can I sync my RBR50 with EX7500

I used to have my AC1900 + EX7500 configuration.  However, it was not very stable.  The communication between AC1900 and EX7500 drops very often.  Recently I decided to upgrade my router to RBR50.  The RBR50 works very well, however, I want to use the EX7500 to increase the coverage and performance.  Just wonder if there is a way to use EX7500 as satellite for RBR50?  Thank you.

Yes they will work together but the ex7500 will not show up as a satellite for orbi.

I have successfully connected both 2.4 and 5 GHz on the EX7500 to RBR50.  Is that right configuration?  Should I connect only 5 GHz only to make it as a fastlane?  By the way, my laptop sometimes keeps the WiFi connection, but it losts the Internet connection for seconds.  It's anything wrong for my configuration?

If you are seeing speed issues you can try fastlane to improve that.

I was wrong the ex7500 does not have fastlane as it is already using a dedicated band to connect to the router so its already fastlane in a sense.

Got it!  Thank you for the information.  I actually found out one interesting thing.  If I remove EX7500 and use RBR50 only, the WiFi signal is much better and won't have Internet drop.  However, two rooms around the corner won't be covered well.  I will reallocate my RBR50 and use EX7300 as an AP, since I still have EX7300.  Any suggestion if I should use same SSID for EX7300?
