Sagem 2704n & NETGEAR Orbi Mesh system

I thought I might buy myself an Orbi mesh system and reading about it it says the router needs to be set up in a modem mode. All above my head I'm afraid so my question is are they compatible and if not would the PN hub be, or am I best of buying a new router as well?

Neither the Sagem or Hub One support modem modem mode.

What you really need is a separate xDSL modem if you intend to go down the Orbi route.

Also be aware, Orbi isn't a true mesh system, despite the marketing.

Its more a traditional router + extender/repeater setup, albeit with a third/dedicated set of radios for backhaul between the Orbi and 'Satellite'

OK thanks I had my suspicions - but it's mostly all way above my head.
