I can think of two possibilities: (a) the pandemic has disrupted Netgear's supply chain and the "slow boat from China" has not arrived, or (b) Netgear has "moved on" from the 2016 technology to WiFi6 and does not see enough profit in manufacturing more of the old Orbi units. Neither of these is particularly helpful when someone needs "just one more satellite" to complete a home WiFi network.

I love my Orbi.

You can try getting ahold of a EX7500 or EX7700 which would work as a RBS.

Right now the Orbi RBS40V is on sale for $99 on Netgear and if you give them your email address you will get 10% off your first purchase. Great coverage and Harmon Kardon speaker system with Alexa. Good price compared to purchasing an RBS22 and more powerful.

RBK753 system/RBR750/RBS750/RBS750 + RBK853 System/RBR850/RBS850/RBS850
There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

FYI, I contacted Netgear in relation to this - they told me they had been impacted by supply issues, but stock will be hitting the shelves in the UK at the end of September. Nothing is discontinued.
