how does Orbi AC3000 RBK50 work with Motorola SBG6580 (2 in 1 model/router)?

Hi There,

 

I plan to buy Orbi AC3000 (RBK50). I have Motorola SBG6850 now, which is a modem/router 2 in 1.

 

1st question. Do I still need the Motorola SBG6850?

 

If so, how should I set up both of them to have the best Wifi speed?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Eddie

You still need the modem but you will need to bridge the modem so the wifi is not enabled on it.
