Help - Hub One with TP link DECO Mesh

I need some help....


I've bought 3 TP-link DECO M4R units in hope of setting up a mesh network and disabling the Hub one (which I think is modem mode)


I've done this with ease in my old setup with Virgin, where I set the Virgin box to 'Modem only' and then had my Deco running the show, but I can't seem to run the same setup in my new place with the Hub one.


Currently, I have plugged in 1 Deco directly to the Hub one as the parent/main Deco, then the other 2 are wireless (mesh). So now I have 2 networks ( the plusnet standard and the new mesh network) , but I only want 1 network.


Both networks seem to be fairly poor in terms of connection, somedays one network is good, and some days the other.  Is there any way I can have only one Mesh network and disable/bypass the Hub one?


Thank you!

The Hub one doesnt support Modem mode. You will need to change the DECO to access point mode
