Why Satellites' region is different from Router's?

V2.5.0.38

 

In RBR50 Advanced Setup / Wireless, Region is set to Singapore. But two RBS50 satellites all show Region Europe.

 

Why's that so? Does that impact transmitter power or signal?

Yes, there are some differences in WiFi standards between Europe and Singapore.

I had thought satellites would inherit basic settings like this from the router.  It's an interesting find. I am certain there is a way to change the settings to all be the same, but have no idea where to start looking.

I love my Orbi.

If satellite do have a hardcoded region "Europe", will it cause any performane or stability issue when Router and Satellite's region unmatched?
