Will this setup work?

We currently have the Xfi Gateway.  We have the whole home DVR with an Xi6 wireless box on one 4K TV.  We are considering getting a Google Nest router and point, and at the same time get our own modem.  However, I am seeing conflicting information on whether the Xi6 will work without the Gateway.  Here is the setup we are considering:

 

Modem:  Netgear CM1000

Router and Point:  Google Nest

 

Will this work with wireless Xi6 on our 4k TV?

 

Thanks!

No, the main dvr talks to the gateway, the gateway then talks to the Xi6 . If you take out the gateway, you end communication

Thanks for the response.

OK...how about this:

  • We get a XG1v4 for the 4K TV (installed with coax)...that will be where the DVR is now.
  • We get an Xi3 to go where the Dvr used to be.

Would we then be able to use our own modem and the Google Nest?

 

Thanks!
