How do I setup Orbi Wifi Mesh?

I bought an Orbi Wifi Mesh.

Instead of disabling the 'Residential Gateway function' as seen in a few other threads, another way to do it is to:

1) Setup Orbi as an access point (AP)
2) Turn off Fizz modem wifi

This configuration lets you keep using the Fizz mobile app.

# Instructions for step 1:

Source: https://kb.netgear.com/31218/How-do-I-configure-my-Orbi-r...

1) Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Internet port of your Orbi router to a LAN port on your Fizz modem.
2) Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your Orbi network.
3) Go to http://orbilogin.com/
4) The user name is admin and the password is the one that you created during set up.
5) Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Router / AP Mode.
6) Select the AP Mode radio button.
7) Select IP Address setting: Get dynamically from existing router. The modem assigns assigns an IP address to the orbi while in AP mode.

# Instructions for step 2:

1) Open an Internet browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
2) The username is cusadmin / and the password is your wifi password
3) Click "Wireless"
4) Click "Off" in both "2.4G" and "5G" tabs
5) Save

Hope this helps someone.

Does anyone else do it this way?
