Orbi RBK43 with Orbi Wall-Plug Satellites

Can you add on additional Orbi wall-plug satellites to the Orbi RBK43 Home AC2200 system?

Can you daisychain the following:

 

Orbi router (RBR50) >>> Wall-Plug Satellite (RBW30) >>> satellite (RBS50) >>>> satellite (RBS50)

Short answer is Yes!

When Daisy Chain is disabled only the Router will broadcast a hidden backhaul network so all Satellites will only have the choise to connect to that backhaul network, and will then connect in a "star topology"

Once you enable Daisy Chain then every Satellite will start broadcasting its own backhaul network and so other satellites will then try to connect to the network which it finds strongest whether it's the Router or another Satellite.

You will not be able to "manually" choose to which Satellite another Satellite will connect, the Satellites will connect to the node with the best received signal level!
