Re: Wired Connection to Satellite

This link is for the discussion for requesting wired backhaul, please let your opinion and voice count for the wired backhaul idea:

Re: Wired Connection to Satellite

Too little to late for me. I returned the Orbi due to lack of wired backhaul. I would have kept it if it had it. Assumed from the getgo that it had the feature since its so basic, and all other compatition has it. Also including mutiple ethernet ports gave me the faslse belief.

 

Going with another system with this feature.

Unifi devices, which is completly different than orbi or any of the mesh systems.

Have there been any updates on this topic in regards to existing Orbi systems allowing connectivity between router and satellites via ethernet?

 

Thanks

There has been a statement from a Netgear employee stating that they are working on it, but no official timeframe was given. The latest news comes from techhive who states at the bottom of this review that a firmware update is coming this Auguest/September to add ethernet backhaul:

Re: Wired Connection to Satellite

The mesh router can not connect to satellite by wireless in the mutiple-storey house and the distance between two story is the minumum distance. The solution will be wired Ethernet backbone and I am using three routers that connect by Ethernet cable.
