These are not "Tri-Band", RBK23 and RBK33 are dual-band, both are the same with minor cosmetic difference. The tri-band is RBK50 class, which holds the benchmark record.
According to netgears website, these are Tri-band. Two 5ghz bands and one 2.4ghz.

You have to disable the 5ghz band until you finish connecting all your devices and then re-enable it. So far its worked but Ive only had the setup for 1 day. No idea if there is a power outage or if your router has to reboot, the setting will stick. I will likely end up attaching an access point that I will use for all my 2.4ghz IOT devices to save myself the headache.
I picked up the warehouse deal of the rbk23 last week and I don't seem to have this problem. I have a couple of 2.4ghz devices that are able to choose and connect to that band on their own. And they were not the first devices I connected.

U should study more before posting. This is a tri band unit. 2.4 and a 5 band. The third band is utilized as a wireless backhaul to other satellites.

Warning to those who have IOT devices that only run on 2.4ghz band. It is a pain in the ass to connect them to this mesh system. Orbi combines the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands into a single ssid with no way to separate them.
https://youtu.be/tEgVG8rR5o8

I used this tutorial to make the router continuously broadcast 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz frequencies, as two separate SSIDs. I highly recommend watching the entire video once (at least) before actually starting the implementation. This way if you lose internet midway, you are not stuck.

Could be a little intimidating for non-techies such as myself, but can be done with very little effort. Good luck!

Can something like the plug in RBW30 be used with the RBR50? An extra RBS50 is just way too costly

Uh, no. You are incorrect. Both the 23 and 33 models are tri-band.

Hot deal. I'd jump on that.

Unfortunately I already have the router and satellite. I would love another satellite but it's going to be hard finding one sub $100, which is ridiculous for a satellite.

It can but your speeds and bandwidth will be downgraded by using a RBW30. Essentially the weakest link in the chain type of situation.

I saw this at my local Costco for 149. I'm almost certain it was the same one
Its 2 pack ( 1 router + 1 satellite) not 3 pack.

The entire network, unfortunately. It's been a well-discussed topic considering how awesome the rbk50 is and how expensive the satellites are.

I'm having trouble separating 2.4 vs 5ghz SSID. Followed article to separate them using telnet but it's been changing both SSID. Seems like issue/blocked with latest firmware. I need them to be separated because a lot of existibg smart devices in my home connecting to wifi with separate names so don't want to reset every one of my devices. I have about 80ish devices now
