Hey everyone.

I've been using a Nighthawk modem/router for a while now but moved to a bigger (read longer) house and just getting too many deadspots even with a powerline and range extender. So I've ordered a Deco M9 mesh kit.
It doesn't look like the M9 has a built in modem but it does have a WAN port. Do I need to add in an intermediate modem to connect the FIBRE AP to the router or can I just plug the fibre access point directly into the M9 kit.

If I need to add an intermediate any suggestions on a small form factor modem than doesnt have wifi or any bells and whistles?

Yeah. Using a microtik modem and then just feeding it directly into the m9. One extra box but oh well. Been very impressed so far with this WiFi kit.
