    Can I assume simple mode doesn't work with that router?  If not and you want to reserve wifi, then DHCP mode is your only choice.

    Otherwise, you make firewalla into the main router as you said in (3)

    I've also a question regarding replacing my ISP router with the Firewalla Gold. But I don't know if the Firewalla is supporting Internet and Routed IPTV in my case.

    Config what I need for Internet is:

    PPPoE via VLAN 6 (802.1q).
    PPPoE authentication PAP with username and password
    Maximum (mtu) 1500 bytes (rfc4638)
    IPv4 address + DNS servers via PPPoE
    IPv6 address + DNS servers (IPv6) via DHCPv6-PD request (in PPPoE). Use an address from router.

    Config what I need for IP TV is:

    Ethernet VLAN 4 (802.1q)
    Address via DHCP needs option60 (Vencor Class Identifier) with value : IPTV_RG.
    Specific routing information via DHCP request (option 55 bevat 1, 3, 28 and 121)
    Extra; Do not use of DNS servers and do not use default gateway only specific routes.
    Turn on IGMP-proxy incl fast-leave option needed for TV signal in home netwerk (min IGMPv2).

    Peter, what do you mean "you didn't find it"?  You can't see the configuration on your app?

    How can I configure the following settings?

    Address via DHCP needs option60 (Vencor Class Identifier) with value : IPTV_RG.
    Specific routing information via DHCP request (option 55 bevat 1, 3, 28 and 121)
    Extra; Do not use of DNS servers and do not use default gateway only specific routes.
    Turn on IGMP-proxy incl fast-leave option needed for TV signal in home netwerk (min IGMPv2).

    Internet works via the Triple Play option.

    Ok it's been a while, I hope to revive this thread. I have the same question. Cannot get TV to work and need the same settings (KPN, right?). Any luck getting it to work? The standard Triple Play settings from https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360050756593-Firewalla-Gold-Triple-Play-VLAN  don't work for my Firewalla Gold. I need these specifics, similar to those mentioned by Peter:

    In this case, the router functions as the last device from the TV platform, so you need to enable IMP proxy (IGMPV2). Additionally, on the router (and any switches between the router and the TV receiver), you should enable IMP snooping. This ensures that multicast TV traffic is only delivered on the ports of the switch to which the television is connected. IGMP fast leave is necessary to terminate unnecessary streams, for example, the process of switching from one channel to another. Also, make sure to add the DHCP Option 60 (Vendor Class Identifier) with the string: IPTV_RG (ASCII character) (this is necessary for proper communication with the TV receiver). Furthermore, you should apply option 121 (Classless Static Route Option) [RFC3442]."

    I'm new at this so I hope someone can help me take the steps to get this to work.

    Right now I have a specific question that is if I can add option 55 parameters to the dhcp. It’s not in the list here: https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360046703673-Firewalla-Feature-Guide-Network-Manager
