Enabling Daisy Chain Topology

Enabling Daisy Chain Topology

I currently have Orbi RBR50 ROuter with 2 RBS50 Satellitles.  I connected the two satellites directly to the Orbi router with ether net cables.  In other words, I made a star connection with ethernet cables. In the Orbi Settings, under the "Advanced Wireless Settings" I have the "Enable Dasiy-Chain Topology" checked. I thought Daisy Chain is when a Satellite communicates with another satellite which then communicates with the router?  In my case, since i wired both satellites directly to the Router, do I Dis-Able the Daisy-Chain Topology?"  Advice is greatly appreciated

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Daisy".

   You can leave it enabled, and not actually use it.  I know nothing,
but I'd expect it to be harmless.
