Re: Adding Another Satellite


Adding Another Satellite

I had 3 satellites connected and running.
I turned our Lanai into a Florida Room so I wanted to move the satellite furthest away from Florida Room closer.
When I plugged it in. The router was NOT seeing it.
I removed it and tried adding it as a new device/satellite.
After I plug it in and sync, the app tells me it can't find it after searching even though after blinking white the ring turns blue then goes dark like my other 2 satellites??

Re: Adding Another Satellite

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Orbi AC products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with Orbi and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this router forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:

Please use this link to the main forum product list to review and choose where to make your posts. 

Thank you.
