Modem mode or not for eero 6 and hub 3

Joining in

Hey folks, I’ve some eeero 6s on the way and currently have the hub three. I’ve seen most of the advice/install guides says to switch to modem mode, to avoid conflict with devices connecting to Hub over Eero, but wondering if there’s guidance around modem mode versus simply disabling the 2 and 5 bands. I have a Hive (kind of like nest) plugged into one of the Ethernet at the moment, and also the VM 360 box. Thanks for any guidance!

Yep, modem mode is always best. A small network switch to plug into the Eero is about £15.
