Hardwire Orbi Sattelite


Hardwire Orbi Sattelite

Is it possible to hardware an orbi sattelite to a modem? I have seen a few conflcting threads discussing the issue on the forms. We have a large outdoor area and are trying to extend our network throughout the house and outdoors. The shed outdoors has a coaxial in it which could be used with a modem to hardware the sattelite to increase reliability / speeds. Essentially want the sattelite to act in another router manner but still remain one continuous network. Let me know and thank you

This is the only configurations that are supported for hardwire:


All satellites have to be wireless or wire connected to the main Orbi router.

If the coax (and AC power) runs to appropriate locations, and the coax is not carrying satellite TV, then you could use a pair of MoCA adapters to wire the shed satellite.
