auto sensing Ethernet port?

Hello,

 I setup the orbi with wired backhaul so I use one port to connect with  the orbi router. But after I connect my device(PC) to the other port, the whole orbi system is down. I cannot get online anymore. So I wander if the two ports are auto sensing?

Re: auto sensing Ethernet port?

They are...

 

What Firmware is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?
Is the Orbi system operating in Router or AP mode?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ethernet switch if one is in the configuration.

 

Ensure the cable between the RBR and PC is of good working quality. CAT6 is recommended. Swap cables for testing. 

Try different ports. 

Try a different PC. 

 

Are you connecting to the RBR or RBS? 

 

Disable Daisy Chain if you have the RBS connected ethernet to the RBR. 

 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CM1100>Orbi RBK50 v2.5.1.16 and Orbi RBK853 v3.2.11.2(AP Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200, Orbi CBK40, Orbi RBK852, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111
