    Hello from Nottingham, I have the same  setup or did and made some change;

    - I started with your setup, I found the WiFi Discs unreliable, nothing to do with Firewalla, so did the following:

    Brought a Draytek Vigor 130 modem and 2 Zytel Access points, much much improved over BT KIT

    Sold BT wifi discs on eBay and kept the BT router for backup purposes.

    Hi Firewall Guy, many thanks for your reply. I have just retired my Draytek 2862lac due to the fact that it won't support the 1GB or thereabouts throughput.

    I am not seeing any issues with the WiFi discs yet, in fact they seem a bit better than my old Draytek ones!!!

    Did your Firewalla work ok though?

    Interestingly does your BT 4G mini hub work ok with the Draytek Modem?

    The firewall in Firewalla worked perfect with your setup, you can also turn off the BT Firewall if you wanted, if you leave it on you get double filtering and protection.

    My BT 4G mini hub only comes on when my internet is out, not had any issues, do not know how to configure at this point anyway.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Hi Dale, I have the 300mbps version of BT full fibre (can get 900 but didn't need it). I simply have the fibre modem connected straight to the Firewalla Gold which is set up to use PPPoE. This is then connected to a UniFi switch and two UniFI AP's.

    I'm not entirely familiar with the 'unbreakable wifi' piece but you could technically plug the fibre modem directly into your Firewalla Gold & then connect the BT router with the 4G connection into the Gold as a secondary WAN and let the firewalla manage your WAN flips. If you had any issues that is :)
