i know this post is old, but hopefully this will work.  i am much less tech savvy as it relates to everything you described below, but wanted a mesh router.  so got the google nest, basically turned off wifi on the G1100, took ethernet cable from LAN to plug into the new wireless router and it all seems to be working fine without doing everything else, but i fear by not doing everything else it will fail at some point.  we do have tv, internet and wifi, but my impression was the coax being plugged into the back of the G1100 and the internet passing through it as it's still be used as modem means the guide function, which is really all i care about, will still work on the tv. 

 

just figure if i'm not maximizing something i should try and figure that out now. 

 

thanks.

Awsome, this totally worked for me! Thank you 🙂 My NetGear Orbi system is now the primary router and the G1100 is serving up phone and cable TV and I got my OnDemand and TV Guide back. Thanks bunches!

No Digital Voice after: Bridge G1100 So Your Router Becomes Primary

Hi - I followed jrmonta's set of steps and it worked perfectly - I have internet through my EdgeRouter 4 and all the tv services work.  However, I just discovered I have no phone service - no dial tone, no ability to call.

 

I realized that this hasn't come up in most of the discussions - I imagine most people just use their cells now.

 

I'm hoping there are just some additional set up steps, ports to forward, etc.

 

Thanks!

Plain Old Telephone line is not affected either you use your own router or Verizon's. The telephone line comes out of the ONT and should directly connect to your phone sets, either being corded or cordless.

Thanks - I think the technician pulled it out thinking it wasn't necessary.
