RBR50 and RBS50 constantly dropping

so I have a router and 1 satelite that are constantly dropping the satelite crashes about every ten minutes. I followed the advice in this thread https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Orbi-satellite-dropping-connection/td-p/1338235 and rolled back the firm ware to no avail. I have totaly unplugged the satelite as its useless my connection with the router is about 2 out of three bars. I am not loosing my connection on anything except my xbox one now its just the signal is not that strong this is very frustrating. Can anyone from support please help me?

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Move the sat closer to the router.

2 things... wireless environments do not remain static.  Distance between the sats and the routers decreased with the 2.0.x releases.  If they're disconnecting, move the sat closer, whether that is 50 feet or 10 feet.  If the sat can't connect to the router, then clients connected to the sat will not work.
