I’ve upgraded my Apple Airport Extreme (AAE) to a Orbi (RBK50) mesh system. I’m using it as an Access Point linked to my BT Hub5.
So far so good, apart for the USB connections.
It was very easy to connect my printer (Canon Pixma MG3550) and my WD Elements HDD to the AAE and used them through wi-fi on my Macbook Air.
However, I can’t figure it out now how to do the same with the Orbi.
Also, when I click on “Network -> Orbi” on my Macbook Air, I see “ReadyShare”. Is this a protocol that I have to use? Do I need to enable it somewhere? will this resolve the issues?
Thanks so much for shedding any light.
PS - Also, feel free to shout if you think using the Orbi as an AP is a waste and I should have it as a router too
