Replacing an RBK50

Replacing an RBK50

I just purchased an RBK753-S at a really good sale price at Costco. It will be here on Wed. What I'm replacing is an RBK50 system. What do I need to do with the RBK50 system before I sell it? What about the Orbi app?

Re: Replacing an RBK50

Just replaced my RBR50 with the RBR850 WIFI 6 router.  One thing I can tell you is DO NOT TAKE SHORTCUTS.  Completely remove all connections from your previous mesh network and follow the instructions directly.  Would have saved myself a couple of hours had I not been in a rush to get the new mesh network up and running for a gaming session!!  Enjoy!!

Re: Replacing an RBK50

By removing all connections do you mean delete all the connected devices thru the app? I take it there's instructions on how to reset the router back to factory prior to selling it?

Re: Replacing an RBK50

I would start with factory resetting it. 

Push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds while its powered on. 

After that, I'd remove it from your account. here's the guide how.

If you do have issues with the new system, here's the forum too post in:
