New Gold Setup
Installed the Gold today in router mode and imported only names of Devices from my Blue as I decided to start again on the rule set. Everything works really well and the setup on iOS was easy, although I set my mesh router to AP mode before I reconfigured the cables.
Only one DNS entry, can you add a second entry somehow?
To be honest and I have no metrics, but my ring cameras seem more responsive.
The recognition of devices within the mesh AP (Netgear ORBI RBR50) now seems to be 100% correct, it never seemed to match what Firewalla had before, so thats a bonus.
My mesh App now works as intended, I had to remote login to access any setup before.
3rd party VPN client works great.
So overall very happy with the new setup...
Now to play around with the VLANs and Group config.
See this FAQ for more info on the DNS part https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360051284214-Firewalla-Gold-FAQ-and-Known-Issues
The reason your ring (and other devices) may be more responsive is, your router the (Orbi) is now only focused on wifi, and all the routing functions are moved to Firewalla Gold (very fast processor), pairing them together, you will get the most optimal networking ... plus, I think the Orbi now can also support many more clients than before.
