Reset mesh connections?

And, another question. In reviewing my Attached Devices, I noted that my outdoor ORBI satellite, located in my shop, is attached to my router, while the satellite in between my router and the shop is connected to my farthest satellite.

 

Here's a schematic....

 

Optimal: Router -> Indoor Satellite -> Shop Satellite

 

What I have instead: Router - -> Shop Satellite -> Indoor Satellite

 

Is there a way to reset the mesh connections so that the system goes to an optimal setting?

Model: RBR50|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi Router

Re: Reset mesh connections?

What appears "optimal" to humans, may not appear so to electronics.  That being said, you can try turning off both satellites.  Power up the "closer one" and let it set for a while.  Then, power up the "far" one and see what happens.

 

When you look at the Attached Devices web page, how does it describe the two satellite connections, "Good"?

I love my Orbi.

Good point - and yes, both are good.

If there are no performance issues, I would be tempted to move on toward another task.  (except "cleaning the garage".  THAT will never "rise to the top of my list.")

I love my Orbi.
