Connecting TP-Link Deco

Hi,

I have a Hub 4 and a TiVo box. I noticed that the coverage in my home with the Hub 4 was not good enough so I got the TP-Link Deco M4 Mesh system. I have connected this up and WiFi is much better. However, I have had to change the Hub 4 to modem mode and thus I am not getting any network connection on the TiVo box; with error code N27. I have my TiVo box connected to Port 4 (bottom most port) and the main M4 connected to Port 1 (top port) on the TiVo. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks

So you need to get a switch connect that to the other port on the Deco M4 and TiVo box to switch.

Or connect the TiVo box to the other port of the Deco M4.

If the hub is in modem mode only one port on the hub 4 will be working - connect the Tivo to a spare port on the Deco M4

I know a bit about Wi-Fi, Telecoms, and TV as I used to do it for a living but I'm not perfect so don't beat me up... If you make things you make mistakes!
