Netgear Orbi Mesh Network

Can I connect and use the Netgear Orbi Mesh Network in tandem with my Xfinity Gateway/Modem?

 

Thank you!

I put my XB7 in Bridge Mode to turn off the XB7 wifi bands.  Then I connected my Orbi to port one on the XB7 and it picked up all my wifi devices.  I also have an Ethernet connection for my Ethernet devices.  The Orbi RBK50 is on the left and the XB7 is on the right.  I have two RBS50 satellites.  I run all my ethernet connections to the RBK50.
