I have my FW Gold installed between my Frontier FIOS 1G router and my network. It's setup in default configuration doing all DHCP for the network and is static IPed from my FIOS router. I have a Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 mesh system running from FW but could not get internet to flow if I connected to the WAN port on the Orbi. Using one of the 4 standard 1G LAN ports on the Orbi allows data to flow and I can see all the devices connected via wifi..but I can no longer talk to the Orbi using the provided Orbi App. As the network stands today it works... But I want it to work correctly and I feel that I should be able to access the Orbi admin page still. Does anyone have recommendations and experience with FW Gold and wifi router connections to build best practices? I know... Leave well enough alone... But it bothers me thinking that something isn't correct. Any inputs are welcome.
