I am getting my Cox instal in 10 days. I currently use the new Netgear Nighthawk MK63 mesh system with slow dal - but the mesh works great with it. How do you set up the Panoramic with a mesh system? Can you turn the radio of which is what I do now or go to bridge mode or both? Thanks in advance for you help.
UPDATE: Well, it turns out they are going to need to due a complete new cable install. With city approvals, blue staking and digging it will be 2-3 months before I have Cox cable. Bummmmmer
How you set it up depends on if you have or plan to ever get a wireless cable box. If so you need to set the MK63 system to AP mode and disable the wifi in the Panoramic router. If not, and you prefer to use your router as a router, then the Panoramic modem would be best in bridge mode and the MK63 in normal router mode. See link below on how to do that;
Why are you getting Panoramic?
I disabled the 2.4 and 5ghz radios, and just plugged the primary mesh router into one of the panoramic modem ports. Putting the modem into bridge mode was a terrible idea, as it disables all but one of the ethernet ports, and nothing else hard-wired to the modem will work. Just disabling the radios worked great, and the CoxWifi hotspot still works, allowing you to feed some devices on the hotspot and not get dinged for usage.
Thanks for the quick reply. They are going to have to do a new cable install so it will be 2-6 wks before I am up with Cox.
Its a "special offer" with free install and Panoramic.
