Ac1200 orbi mesh

I am looking to get the orbi 1200 mesh system to help get WiFi coverage across my house and eliminate slow spots.  I noticed it is also a router in the system but I currently have a modem/router in one(netgear Ac1600). Can I still use the orbi system with this? Is there a way to make my AC 1600 just a modem and not also route so that I can use this mesh system.

 

thanks in advance for your help.

   "AC1600" is a speed, not a model number.  Look for "Model" on the
product label.  "C6250"?

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.
Look for a topic like "Cable the Modem Router to a Router and Use Bridge
Mode".
