If I put my Orbi AX6000 in bridge mode will it turn off the satellites

Hi - I am getting mixed answers. My service provider Atlantic Broadband told me to put my Orbi in bridge mode or my Tivo and on demand wont work - but when I call Netgear they say if I put it in bridge mode the satellites will turn off. Any advice on how to accomplish both.

 

I currently dont have it in bridge mode and it is super buggy and not performing well. I have to believe it is because two routers are competing.

 

P.S. I have no technical skills - so please provide a layperson answer 🙂

I think they probably mean access point mode. Access point mode won't interfere with your satellites.
