I’ve read that I can extend range with a second base but have a few questions:
1) is this right?
2) can I use one normal and one pro base on the same network for this?
3) does the second base need to have an Ethernet connection to it as well as the first?

1) yes, it is the onlt real way to extend coverage
2) yes, all Arlo,Pro,Pro2 cams work with either base
3) yes, all bases need an ethernet connection , tho it can be an ethernet port on a wifi extender

That is what I would have thought as well, that the internet connection is the signal to the cameras. But I guess it must be the Base Station that is sending the signal and the internet connection is only for the cloud storage.
alot of this would depend on the model, but from what i understand this shouldnt be true in most cases. I have the base arlo system with 4 cameras (about 2 years old). The base station does provide the wireless signal to the cameras and then the base station connects to the internet. I know this for sure, because my cameras do not get an IP address from my router.
With that said, devices like the Arlo Q do not require the base station. I would assume this means they connect directly to the internet. In this case, what you were told would be a true statement.
As far as connecting the two base stations, I only have one, so cant help with that.
