Order Of Operation to set up Passthrough for mesh system
Forgive me for I am ignorant...but I bought a TP-Link 2 pod(total) mesh system and have the ATT supplied BGW210-700 router/modem with Fiber connection.
I am seeing different site that offer install tutorials but it feels like they think I know more than I know. My first question that seems to get skipped...probably because it is obvious to folks that are reasonably savvy...do I do the passthrough procedure before or after I connect and set up my new mesh router? I want to Keep my network name so I don't have to change all of my devices again, but will if I need to.
Other than that I sort of understand most everything, except the one video I keep coming back to the guy says you need to change the IP address of the ATT provided R/M...is this necessary?

You said -->Our laptops are Mac's so we don't have that connection point.
And if the system ever does factory reset, you will have the code on the back of the modem, and you will have a factory provided ssid that is activated, that you can get back into. (via wifi and using the code on the modem..)
