New satellite - RBS50

Hi

I'm after another RBS50 satelite but they dont seem to be available anymore? Do the RBS20/40 work with the RBR50 system? Or any others?

Or is it just the newer RBS50Y now (much more expensive)?

If someone could clarify please

Thanks

Duncan

Re: New satellite - RBS50

The RBS20, rbw30, rbs40, rbs40v, rbs50, rbs50y are all compatible with your system. The only different is that only the 50 series of devices have the 1733mbps backhaul. the others use a 866mbps backhaul. 

but they do work.

Netgear has them in stock, https://www.netgear.com/orbi/rbs50.aspx.

If you feel comfortable, there are also many used RBS50 satellites for sale at various sites, for reasonable prices.

Orbi RBK53 System/RBR50/RBS50/RBS50. + Orbi Voice RBS40V
RBK753 system/RBR750/RBS750/RBS750 + RBK853 System/RBR850/RBS850/RBS850
There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

Re: New satellite - RBS50

Not sure if you're in the UK, but there's no satellite stock anywhere here atm (all models) outside of eBay. Amazon displaying the ominous 'we don't know when or if this item will be back in stock' notice too, which is never a good sign...

I'm hoping it's just supply chain issues due to COVID-19, but it would be really good to get someone from Netgear to clarify what's going on here...
