SkyQ setup with Orbi AX600

Hi,

Looking for some advice. My current set up is a SkyQ Hub with an Orbi RBS50 mesh system. I have the orbi set to AP mode. I have several TP Powerliness around the house with sky q minis plugged in. TP Powerlines are connected to the SKYQ Hub as I'm pretty sure you had to have the SKY Mini's connected through the SkyQ hub in the past, though I stand to be corrected. I have a seperate wifi network for the ORBI  RBS50 mesh system.

 

So I currently have etherent connected on SKYQ for anything plugged into the TP Powerlines, A SkyQ WiFI Network and a seperate ORBI WiFi network. It's all a bit messy.

 

So I have now purchsed a TP ARCHER VR2100, some new TP Powerlines and The new AX6000 Orbi Mesh System.

 

I want to use the TP ARCHER as a modem only, connect the Orbi into it and run the TP Powerlinks so I have just one network. Can I do this by setting the TP ARCHER to Modem only? Do I connect the TP Powerline to the orbi router or the TP ARCHER? When I connect the ORBI will that be what effectively creates the network SSID?

 

Sorry if this is all a bit confusing, I'm not a savvy as I would like to be. Any advice would be greatly received.

 

Many thanks in advance.

The Configuration should look like this I believe:

Modem>Orbi RBR in router mode><All wired LAN devices (Any PowerLine) connected to the back of the RBR. 

My Setup (Cable 1Gbps/50Mbps)>CAX80 v2.1.2.1(LAG Disabled)> RBK953(v6.0.3.68) & XR450(v130)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200CM2000, Orbi CBK40, CBR750, RBK853 v4.6.3.16(AP) & RBK752 v4.6.5.14, RBK50(v22), SXR30(v110), R7000(v34), R7800(v84), R7960P(v82), EX7500/EX7700, and WNHDE111

Thank you, thats what I was hoping. That will give me just one network? Do I create that when I set up the modem or the RBR?

Yes. Setup the RBR. You'll need to refer to the mfrs support site for help and information regarding the modem.
