Restoring ORBI RBR50 router configuration file to RBR20 router - Possible?

I just purchased a new  Orbi RBR20 setup (1 router + 2 sat) and I want to dump my old RBR50  but keep my existing config.

 

Is it possible to   use the RBR50 router config file on the RBR20 router? I don't want to start from scratch..

Model: RBK22| Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi System

Though some similarities, the backup config files are marked for each model Orbi so there would be probably a check on this when you attempted to load the other config file to the new system and would probably not be accepted. I would be best to set up from scratch and then save off a new config file for the new system.

OK next question would be ..

 

Can  I use same  SSID and password for wifi at least?  I am going to guess no?

 

I have a  bunch of IoT devices that I really don't want to have to add again..

Yes you can. You can use same SSID and PW as before with other system. Aslong as other system isn't being used.
