Replacing Xfinity Gateway Model # TC8305C with Netgear Modem, Orbi Router/Satellites

I have Xfinity Voice, Internet (200 mbps) and TV service and am replacing an Xfinity Gateway Model # TC8305C with a Netgear CM1150V Modem, Orbi Router/Satellites and was wondering if the attached network layout would work OK. Anything to be careful with? Thanks.

Can't see your pic. Since you are a new poster, it needs to be approved by a Forum Admin. That could take some time. In the interim, you could try hosting it at one of those free third-party pic hosting sites like Imgur or Photobucket and post the link to it here.

Thanks for alerting me. I can see it fine on my post so I would have never known. I did post something similar on the Netgear site and the configuration did work just fine.

Well, when I was still using my CM1150V + ASUS RT-AC88U, I had a similar setup and it was working just fine. I don't see anything wrong with the system you laid out here.

Thanks. This is working spendidly. I am getting 90 - 100 MBPS wirelessly on my 200 MBPS service with occasional higher speeds and with multiple devices. Much better than the 10-15 mbps I was getting with the old Xfinity Gateway. TV, Apple TV, iMac and other AV devices all hard wired in now via Ethernet. Life is good!
