Modem mode vs Router Mode

Hi

 

Whats the difference between the Hub 3 being in router mode with both WiFi radios deactivated, and Modem mode? Im running my Hub 3 in router mode but turned the WiFi radios off in settings. Ive run a Cat5 from the Hub3 to the INTERNET port on my TPLINK router, and have the TPLINKs WiFi radios on.

Any issues with this? Ive tried switching Hub 3 to MODEM mode and I lose Internet.

 

Many thanks

Re: Modem mode vs Router Mode

Short answer: you have double NAT which is potentially troublesome.
