Netgear Orbi and FiOS Extender question
Enthusiast - Level 2

I have 2 FiOS network extenders that are hooked up through coax and use them to hardwire devices in the bedrooms. If I get the Netgear Orbi system can I still use the FiOS extenders to hardwire the devices in the bedrooms? I know I would need to turn the wireless off on them but I would like to still be able to hardwire devices in the bedrooms if I can. The Orbi wouldn't be in the bedrooms so I couldn't be hardwired to them.

Yes it's possible.  If needed you can even use the extenders to give the Orbi system wired backhaul, if it supports thst, if you have a spot in your home where mesh performance is less than ideal.
