Hi moderator,

If i use archer vr1600v and also ORBI RBK50, do i need to set up archer to bridge mode?
I am on NBN FTTC.
Atm, i connect my orbi internet port to archer lan port as an AP. Not sure if that's the correct way to extend my wifi signal?

Please help

Hi @satebabi889

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Your set up is correct in order extend the WiFi signal in your premises.

If you'll bridge the modem/router (VR1600), then the phone service will not work as the authentication needs to work from the main modem/router.

Hi again @BasilDV

If i dont use the phone service, can i connect other way? Like from ORBI directly to the nbn box? Or i still need the archer?

Hi @satebabi889

 

If your Orbi device can be configured with VLAN ID 2, then you may connect it directly to the NBN NCD box.

 

You may check the manual or specification of the device or contact the equipment manufacturer for further information.
