Configuring AT&T Fiber with Netgear Orbi
I have AT&T Fiber using an 2Wire 5268AC gateway. I also have a 2-node Netgear Orbi mesh network using RBR850 routers.
I have configured them both for the gateway to passthrough the internet traffic from the gateway to the orbi, but I've been using old documentation from users in these communities that are inconsistent and often refer to small and large differences in settings.
The result in my configuration is frequent disconnects on my devices. When I temporarily enable the gateway wifi and connect devices to it, the connection is more consistent but it can't use it permanently because the gateway wifi won't extend to the whole house.
Also, not sure if this is related but both the gateway and modem show speedtests at almost the 1GB speed, but all my devices show only arounds 200-300 MB.
Does anyone have good and recent procedures for configuring my desired setup?
I'm not very interested in any advanced routing. I just want my devices to connect to the home network and the internet.
