You can try this configuration:

  1. Connect your devices like this: Modem -> pcWRT -> Orbi. I.e., connect Modem to pcWRT WAN port, then connect from a pcWRT LAN port to Orbi WAN port.
  2. Configure the Orbi as an Access Point (AP).
  3. Turn off WiFi on the pcWRT.

You’ll use WiFi from the Orbi only and your devices will appear as wired connections to the pcWRT.

For more info on how to run the Orbi as AP:
