Orbi Satellite permanently pinging the gateway

First of all, I am using the Orbi RBR750 system, which I didn´t find in the Model Listing for this forum. 

 

The FW in use is V3.2.16.22_1.4.9.

 

I found a thread about the same issue, which seems to be closed but inconclusive.

 

For some reason I started monitoring my LAN traffic by mirroring interfaces on a switch to which the ORBI is connected.

 

My Orbi Satellite is constantly pinging the Orbi Router (Satellite 10.3.8.3 - Router 10.3.8.1). Every 2 seconds one ping. All day long.

 

Is this really intended bahaviour? This constant icmp traffic somehow disturbs me.

Model: RBR50|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi Router

Done. Thanks for the hint. Though I can also not find my model in the list there when posting ;-)

I tend to use this menu system for Orbi models:

My Orbi RBS50 satellite pings the RBR50 router about once a second.  No idea why, but it does.

I love my Orbi.

Re: Orbi Satellite permanently pinging the gateway

Wouldn´t it be nice to know the "why"?  Or am I being too curious? :-)

 

BTW, I also love my Orbi ;-)
