RBK50 Satellite Speed

Hi Everyone,

New to the forum and did a little searching.  Does Orbi software have or do they plan to add speed between Satellites?  I do show it is on 5g but not the actually connection speed between the 2 Orbi.

No idea, you can made a request here for it:

The speed rates should be at max per the specs seen for the 40 or 50 series.

Thanks,

It would just be easier to be able to find tune the placement of the satelitte.  Right now I am getting around 100 meg but every blue moon it will get around 280.

 

I will put a request in.

Re: RBK50 Satellite Speed

I agree, would be more helpful.

 

Another app I find helpful for devices with wifi is WiFi Sweet Spot. It's tests the connection between the device and router or satellite.

Generally, check the routers web page for the status of the connection between the router and satllite. 30feet is a good start, not too close. Mines 40 feet.
