So basically I’m trying to make sure I’m understanding my idea for my new home network correctly. Xfinity Gigabit service - Arris 33 Cable Modem - 2.5GB port from modem to Port 4 WAN port on Firewalla Gold Plus. Then create LAG setup on FWG+ ports 2 and 3. Then create Wi-Fi LAN on port 1. I will turn both TP-Link Tri-Band WiFi 7 BE22000 Whole Home Mesh System (Deco BE85) units (comes with two devices) from router to AP mode. The FWG+ will operate in DHCP Router mode. One cable will run to one Deco device and plug into one of its 2.5GB ports. Then I will run another cable from the second 2.5GB port to the second Deco unit to enable the Ethernet back haul capability. The LAG ports 2 and 3 from the FWG+ will run to a managed switch that supports lag and either from there my wire Ethernet devices will connect or I can also run another two port LAG to another switch if necessary. That’s the hardware setup. Then comes the software setup as I do plan on using segmentation and VLANs (both on Wi-Fi and wired devices for further security). Does this sound correct or is my thinking wrong here. Thank you in advance. -John
