Multiple wifi radios

Hello!  Just hooked up and updated my Orbi. I am adding Orbi to an existing WiFi cable modem/router (Motorola SB6580).

 

Should I...

 

1) Rename Orbi network to existing network?

 

2) Run two separate networks?

 

3) Turn off the WiFi radio on the cable modem/router and run only Orbi net?

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Turn off WiFi radio on cable/modem router and let the Orbi handle all the wireless.  Run the Orbi in AP mode and let your modem router handle the DHCP and such.  Although you probably already did that (put Orbi into AP mode).
