Name. IPTV
Internet VLAN ID. 10
Internet VLAN Priority. 0
IPTV VLAN ID (Astro). 20
IPTV VLAN Priority. 4

How to fix this if the vlan setting only allows to have name,ID and priority? Do you set a second line for the last 2 lines in the above setting?

orbi will assign a LAN port for singtel tv and that it only support singtel tv but no internet.

make sure you connect to the right port..

So you do not need another vlan command line for internet?

No no got the understanding wrong.

When you key in the settings you have to input the internet settings which is tagged to wan.

At LAN side, you need to choose a lan port, usually lan 3 or 4 which you will need to select the singtel tv settings..

So you do not need another vlan command line for internet?

For my 150sqft EA I use one RBK50 Orbi Router and one Satellite only.

Max out my fibre speed almost anywhere on speedtest even in toilet. (300+mbps)

Saw a few models RBK40, RBK50, RBK43, RBK53. I am on m1 1gb speed. Which one should I go for? Typical 1500sqft.

If you are going to use wireless backhaul, RBK50 has 2x867Mbps bandwidth for the data exchange between Orbi Main and Orbi Satellite, RBK40 has 1x867Mbps.

If you are going to use wire backhaul, then doesn't matter.

Just to check with current owner, if i were to come from Asus lyra trio to orbi, will i be seeing an improvement in term of wifi speed throughput and 4k video streaming over wifi? Will be using wireless backhaul.
