Armor with CAX80 and Orbi 960

Hello,

I have a CAX80 with Armor subscription in router mode and WiFi turned off. I then have Orbi 960 connected to CAX80 in router mode. I just want to confirm that the Armor subscription on the CAX80 is sufficient and is not needed also on the Orbi.

Kind of based on needs or usage. You can use the Orbi in router mode if you want too. Will be in a double NAT condition however you can use the CAX80's DMZ for the RBR in router mode to avoid this condition. 

 

Kind of up to you though.

Yes. I would recommend running the 9 series Orbi in AP mode if you have the CAX80 in router mode.

Thank you for the quick response. If I am only using the Orbi for WiFi is there any security benefit to leaving it in router mode?
