Sorry if this question has been asked before, I`m new to this type equipment. I am having VM installed on Saturday and want to have a mesh system and not access points for my house, so after taking some advice I have purchased TP link X60. When I start the set up to install the deco, should the VM Hub already be in router mode or modem mode ? Or should I set up in router mode and switch the hub to modem when first X60 is installed.

Follow this procedure. For Deco's some have said that it needs the setting up done via the internet first - but not sure if that's correct. So play it by experimenting. __________________________________________________
Disconnect all cables from your new router (or Deco Mesh first unit) and unplug it (or set it up first and then switch it off).
Put the VM Hub into modem mode (see VM website for “how to” details) and wait for the base light to turn magenta/purple (on a Hub3 - but not on a Hub4!). Once it’s in modem mode, the VM hub must then be powered off.
Then, set up your own router/Mesh with the WAN port set to be in DHCP & Nat mode, it may be pre-set that way anyway. Make sure it’s fully initialised (leave 5 min) and then put in the WAN cable into the VM hub. Now power up the VM hub and you should get a connection in a few minutes. Then use the recommended Deco App to connect other Mesh units to the first one. This order only needs to be done the first time you connect the router to the VM hub.
