I am scheduled to receive my Firewalla Purple on Monday, November 29. I plan to install it between my cable modem and an Asus RT-AX88u in router mode. I tried to go through the various getting started articles and am getting more confused. I now have my LAN set to 10.0.145.xxx, and a Synology NAS with a fixed IP of 10.0.145.3, everything else using DHCP. What is the order in the installation? Do I set the Asus to AP/bridge mode first before I install the Purple? Disconnect the Asus, install the Purple and set it up in router mode, then connect the Asus and set it to AP mode? Sorry, I know just enough about networking to be dangerous. Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
