I thought that I would need to set the HUB 5X to modem mode, but I can't find that setting.  

Is there a guide available?

If double NAT is a concern, using the Mesh in Access Point is also an option until the Hub 5x gains modem mode.

Its better not to best be on your LAN and not VM LAN

Do you have a guide for how to do that with Google Nest WiFi?
