Orbi RBK 50 AC3000 Wifi Dead spots

I just purchased the RBK50. I live in about a 3,000 square feet town house that has 4 levels. I placed the Router on the 2nd floor and the Satelite on the 4th floor. I am still finding some dead Wifi spots. If the RBK 50 is designed for a 5,000 square feet home why would Istill have wifi dead spots? Any body have any ideas? Thanks

Building materials like concrete and metallic rods can cause problems. 5Ghz is effected by building materials and works best in line of sight due to it's high frequency.

 

I have a 5000sq ft house however only 2 story and have 1 Satellite at opposite end of house. no dead spots. House is of wood and dry wall construction.

It's harder to cover 5,000 SF between floors than it is across a single floor.

 

I would try the router on the 2nd floor and the satellite on the 3rd floor. You should have fewer dead spots on floors 2 and 3 that way.
