Modem versus Router mode

I have a Google WIFI plugged into the hub3.0, which is setup near to a tv.  

Today I tried to plug a ethernet cable from the TV's firestick into one of the ports on the hub3.0 but it wouldn't get recognised, however i plugged laptop in via ethernet and it worked and i was able to get internet access?

The firestick would only work if i changed from Modem to Router mode...

Any thoughts?

Re: Modem versus Router mode

If your hub is in modem mode your only supposed to have one ethernet plugged in. That's the point in modem mode, it turns the hub into a modem with one port which goes to your Google wifi
