Connect 2 Orbi RBR40 routers together

Hello everyone,

I have a package RBK40 (RBR40 + RBS40) and I want to connect another Orbi router RBR40 to be a satellite. Is that possible?

Thank you.

Model: RBK40| Orbi AC2200 WiFi System

No. RBR units can only operate as a router or main AP mode device. Not as a extender or satelite.
