There is no way to explicitly connect two satellites. Orbi has recently upgraded their firmware which improves things quite a bit. Use the Ethernet ports on the Router and the Satellite to connect your Point of Sale, printer, IP phones. Netgear tells me it'll eventually enable a daisy-chain mode that will provide satellite-to-satellite communication, but not until it's possible for the network to automatically steer clients between the router and the satellite(s. However, when daisy chain is enabled, your Orbi router uses either daisy chain or star topology depending on which set up provides the best WiFi performance for your home. Daisy Chain your Orbi Satellites to extend the coverage of your Orbi WiFi System range. A solid blue light indicates that it automatically joined the Orbi network. parceling out the Wi-Fi signals to the Orbi Pro satellites on. That means you can't daisy-chain the satellite back to the router with a wired connection for faster speeds at distance. It my case, I had to power on the wireless satellite before the wired one otherwise it would pick up the signal from the latter and daisy chain onto that - there must be some way to force it somehow but I haven't had time to look into it yet. Daisy Chain your Orbi Pro Satellites to extend the coverage of your Orbi Pro WiFi System range. @BellaWii: Yeah, I noticed that too. If your satellites all show connected to the router, you're running in star mode. This worked for me. In the advanced wireless settings, you have the option of disabling daisy chain mode which would force both satellites to connect directly to the main router. Glad I could help. The following image shows how to connect your Orbi satellites and your Orbi router to an Ethernet switch. Support for Orbi Outdoor Satellite (RBS50Y). One additional tip: I have my Orbi system on Ethernet backhaul in daisy chain. NETGEAR Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band Add-On Satellite (RBS50-100NAS) Can be configured as a hub and spoke (Router is hub and satellites are spokes around the house) or in a daisy chain (router is at one end of the house and talks through satellite(s) to get to other satellites. Orbi WiFi Systems support both daisy chain and star network layout. The Orbi router and satellite each also feature four gigabit Ethernet jacks -- Nest only includes one spare jack on its router, and none on the satellite at all. This feature allows the Satellite to dynamically pick the best way to connect to the Router. Daisy Chain your Orbi Pro Satellites to extend the coverage of your Orbi Pro WiFi System range.
