I’ve recently added a Deco M9 mesh system to my home and I was having all sorts of issues with WiFi signal, my Sonos etc dropping out. I realised it was due to having the hub and Deco both in Router mode. I turned off the WiFi on the hub. It worked ok for a while, then more issues. I solved those by changing the Deco to AP mode only. Everything works now but it seems a shame not to be able to use the anti virus etc on the Deco now. I read if I put the hub in modem mode, plugged the deco into this, only the deco, then added a switch to the Main Deco, it should all work ok. Everything plugged into the switch they I want hard wired.
stupid question, the Virgin cable in from the wall has a coax and Ethernet cable. Both need to be connected into the hub. If I can only plug the Deco into the hub, when it’s in modem modem, where do I plug the Ethernet cable linked to the coax cable? The virgin instructions suggest it has to be in the Hub? Would it go in the switch?
the coax is connected to the wall plate. Then Into a splitter (tv and broadband). Then four cables come out of the splitter. Two coax and two Ethernet. The setup instructions said to plug one coax and one Ethernet into both the hub and the virgin tv box.
