How to Sync/connect 4th Satellite to Orbi RBR50

I know as per manual you can connect only 3 satellites, But aftre buying 4th Staellite negear customer support was helping around, due to lockdown my support time expired now i am stuck with 4th satellite 

last what he guided me was to hardwire from router to satellite (any) then from that satellite hardwire to RBR50 after they will chnage some setting in browser and all of my staellite will work but unfortunately there is no way i acn contact them again 

can anyone help me here?

Re: How to Sync/connect 4th Satellite to Orbi RBR50

I've seen several posters that simply shut off already sync'd satelllites while they were setting up the new satellites. 

I've used the same process when I added a 4th/5th satellite for testing. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> SXK30-> GS716v2-> Arris W31 x2-> Pi-hole->

If you got a new RBS it may not be on same version of FW as what you already have running. The new RBS needs to be updated first to same version of FW.

well IMHO....if it were me, I'd unplug everything and plug it all back in starting with your modem, then the orbi router followed by each sat.

Try turning OFF all of the other RBS and see if you can sync the 4th with the RBR alone. 

Is Daisy Chain enabled? You might disable this on the RBR first.

same concept....possible do the 4th(?) sat first....also check the distance.  Not over 30 feet

 

and...if this 4th sat is a ADD ON...it won't have the password, so you must re-sync.

have you confirmed that based on what you just said (NG says more than 3) that sat4 can be one of the 3?

There have been posts from users describing how they connected as many as six satellites to an Orbi router. Their method was as follows:

 

  • Power off one of the existing satellites.  In a few minutes, the Attached Devices web page will show this satellite as "Disconnected" and display a button to Delete the satellite.  Do NOT click this button.
  • Power on the 4th satellite.
  • Click the "Add a satellite" menu item.
  • Proceed through the steps to add a satellite.  They suggest it is most convenient to do this with the satellite in the same room as the router to avoid rushing through the house to press the WPS buttons within the 2 minute time allowed and to be able to observe the ring light on the new satellite.
  • Once the new satellite has connected to the router, it will appear on the Attached Devices web page.
  • The new satellite can now be placed in the desired location and the satellite that was powered off can be powered on again.
  • In a few minutes there will now be four satellites on the Attached Devices web page.
  • To add satellite #5, two of the existing satellites must be powered off.  To add #6, three existing satellites must be powered off.

Can you give this method a try?

I love my Orbi.
