Love my orbi...works great ...

Love my orbi...works great

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your router?

Question...If I connct the orbi router to orbi sattelite with a cat 5 patch cable will it work the same as if they were wireless???

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Havent tried yet. the reason im asking is we have another home where the router is in a seperate metal building (shipping container) that we have set up as an office. the steel construction prevents interferes with wifi signals, So we have run a patch cqat 5 cable to out main home some 50 feet away where I have setup main/slave older routers (lan to lan systems to bring internet acces to the house. Im tires of having to configure each time a router goes out...so if I attach a cat 5 between orbi router adn sattelite...will it work?????

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

Nothing eolse
