can orbi satelite alone works with different router than orbi router?

I just Bought RBK50, it is on the way .. while I was checking I didnt find clear information about the possibility to have the ORBI satelite works without orbi router .

 

Other products like Nokia Beacon 3, each unit can work as Satelite and mesh router .

 

hope that this will be possible .

No... you need an orbi router to work with an orbi satellite.

Re: can orbi satelite alone works with different router than orbi router?

The one time I tried this, I had my satellited wired to the Orbi base. I removed the base and changed to a different router, leaving the satellite ON and connected via LAN wire to the different router. It continued to. I didn't power OFF and ON the satellite to see if it would operate after that. I presumed it wouldn't as it probably needed to checking with the base that was no longer there. So this portion is not proven.

The RBK50 is an Orbi kit that comes with an Orbi router (Model RBR50) and an Orbi satellite (Model RBS50).

 

If that is what you bought, were you planning to use the satellite somewhere else rather than with the router that is also on its way to you?

 

Just another user.
