Quick Orbi Access Point question

Hi

 

I'm going to set my Orbi Router up as an Access point and use it with my 24 port switch. I plan to have ethernet backhaul from the Satellites due to the building structure.

 

Simple enough question, which configuration from below works best ?

 

Option 1:

Fibre Modem/Router -> Orbi (as an AP) -> 24 port Switch -> Orbi Satellites

 

OR

 

Option 2:

Fibre Modem/Router into 24 Port Switch -> 24 Port Switch then Connects into Orbi and Satellites

 

OR

 

Option 3:

Two Ethernet connections from Fibre Modem/Router, into Switch AND into Orbi

 

Hope this is simple enough, just want to ensure the satellites don't get confused when connecting back to the Orbi as an access point. I want to use Cat 6 to connect satellites to Orbi where possible.

 

Thanks

Mark

Re: Quick Orbi Access Point question

Depending on segmentation and how you want the Orbi and switch connected, option 1 or 2. 


Never option 3.
