RBK852 and CM1100 Setup


RBK852 and CM1100 Setup

Hello, everyone! This is my first post on this board. I currently have xfinity gigabit service and have decided to kick Comcast’s equipment to the curb. I’m about to upgrade to the RBK852 WiFi 6 Orbi along with the CM1100 router. Does anyone have a similar setup? Are there any potential pitfalls I need to be aware of? I have an ever increasing number of devices and I want to maximize the potential of my gigabit network. The RBK852 may be a bit overkill if there is such a thing, but the the 842 & 752s were out of stock and the time of purchase. Thank you.

I've got the cm1100 and the RBK53. I've also ran it with the cm1100 and the RAX200. 

Both worked great. There shouldn't be any issue with the AX kit. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Same here, testing mine with my CM1100. Thought I didn't get a chance to try LAG. Smiley Wink
