Re: Orbi LBR20 How-To / Megathread

It depends on "which wifi?", but assuming that you probably rather mean the "fronthaul" connections with their broadcasted SSIDs (opposed to the hidden ones when using additional satellites): While it would be far too easy and also convenient to be able to do that via the official GUI (so Netgear th...

Re: Orbi LBR20 How-To / Megathread

Yeah, unfortunately it looks like that. While I can't get rid of the impression that most of such missing features are rather caused by suboptimal software than hardware constraints, maybe one eventually simply also pays for exactly that kind of better software when buying more expensive devices.
