VLAN configuration digital television
This question might have been asked several times before but I don't seem to find a straightforward answer yet...
We're moving to a new house that has digital cable TV (over coax). I want to purchase the Orbi system to provide my entire house with perfect WiFi coverage and to have access to network ports where needed. However, the digital TV decoders need to be in the same IP range as the main router delivered by the service provider. Let's say they're in range (10.0.x.x) and my network would be (192.168.1.x).
I read that VLAN configuration might be used to specify which ports should connect to the first router in the chain and thus obtaining an IP address out of the 10.0.x.x range.
I this possible with a port that is on one of the satellites?
How should I proceed to make this possible?
Thank you in advance for your support.

Modem Combo Units:
This would be a double NAT condition which isn't recommended. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT
Couple of options,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge 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
I recommend trying option #3 and let the ISP service router handle IPs. Use the Orbi for WiFi connections and coverage.
