Deco Mesh M4R in combination with Ziggo Wifi Booster Pod

I have just received two Ziggo Wifi Booster Pods which I didn't need but were compulsory with a new tv decoder. I already have a Deco Mesh M4R unit connected to my Ziggo modem which, takes over the functionality of the ziggo modem.

 

How can i make use of these pods? Can they be connected to the Deco app as an extra unit?

 

There is no point in connecting them to the ziggo modem because its no longer giving of a wifi signal as thets now done my the Mesh unit.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

The pods and the Decos cannot work together.

 

The Wi-Fi of the modem must be turned off for the Decos for the best functioning of the Decos.

The WiFi of the modem must be switched on at the pods, because the WiFi of the modem is the indispensable foundation for the SmartWifi mesh network system that becomes 1 with the pods.

 

So it's either use the Decos without the modem's wifi or use the pods with the modem's wifi.

Using these two mesh systems together therefore does not work without all kinds of connection problems.

Thanks for your quick reply! The wifi of the my ziggo modem is out/off so the Deco mesh unit that its connected to  will give off the only wifi signal.

 

So if i understand you correct I have two choices.

 

1. Ziggo modem wifi off using the Deco Mesh unit for wifi or

2. Ziggo modem wifi on so that the Deco Mesh wifi unit is off and use the WIFI booster pods
