Modem Combo Units:
Couple of options to try,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge mode. Then use the Orbi router in router mode.
2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modems DMZ for the IP address the Orbi router gets from the modem. Then you can use the Orbi router in Router mode.
3. Or disable all wifi radios on the modem and connect the Orbi router to the modem, LAN to LAN and configure AP mode on the Orbi router.

And word on results?

 

I fought the good fight with Altice.... there new system... (stuck with it till Fios rools around to my part of Bronx)

 

Their hardwar communicate to each other via the wifi, so i can not be disabled.  Also come to find out I am also one of the new hot spots for them as welll.  All in the fine print folks.... 

 

At the end of the day their Wifi is terrible  Just terrible. Thw wired  Lan off the Main box is great. The satellite boxes is garbage. and they would allow you to bridge their router.

 

I will run through your list tonight and report back any successes or failures.

 

 

I really miss my Orbi. I worked it just worked no effort.
