Hi,

 

Going to install TP-Link Deco X20 AX1800 system tomorrow.  I have a hub 4.  Do I put it into modem mode or not?.  Anything else to consider?

thanks

Ah, I didn't see where you mentioned a third party router or is it, in fact, not required?


Not sure what you mean, however the original poster has a TP-Link Deco X20 AX1800 that has a router mode.

Can I ask where all of my wired devices would get their ip addresses from with the HUB 4 in Modem Mode or have I missed something obvious here?


In modem mode you get one WAN IP by one source MAC you have most use a home router that gives out RFC1918 IP's like 192.168.0.x to then go out your one WAN IP. Of course more advanced ways can be to NAT your one WAN IP to many devices.
