Orbi

Hi. have the Orbi systems and I just about to change internet providers. They have the the following routers:

Netcomm NF18MESH

D-Link Viper 2600

Which one is best for my existing system. Is there any system changes that I will need to make.

Thanks

Re: Orbi

If you have a Orbi mesh system already, then ask the ISP for a modem/ONT option only. You don't need another wifi router in front of the Orbi router. This would be a double NAT (two router) condition which isn't recommended. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT

If you do have to get a modem/router combo, Couple of options,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge or modem only mode. Then use the Orbi router in router mode. You'll need to contact the ISP for help and information in regards to the modem being bridged correctly.
2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modems DMZ/ExposedHost or IP Pass-Through 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, configure AP mode on the Orbi router. https://kb.netgear.com/31218/How-do-I-configure-my-Orbi-router-to-act-as-an-access-point and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7LOcJ8GdDo&app=desktop
