What is daisy chain and how does it work with my Orbi WiFi System?

Daisy chain is a networking term that describes one way that network devices can connect. With the latest firmware update, Orbi now supports both daisy chain and star network topologies.

With daisy chain networking, your satellites can connect to each other or to the router, depending on which connection is best. The following image shows a daisy chained Orbi system:

Orbi still supports star networking, if that’s what’s best for your needs. The following image shows an Orbi system that uses star networking:
