I am a newbie and I’m expanding my home network for the first time. I have some questions on how to approach installing firewall on my network.
Currently I have a Spectrum wireless router. A Unifi POE switch is connected to this Spectrum router. A UniFi POE switch has UniFi AP PRO and Cloud Key Gen2 for camera’s is connected.
I want to put Protectli firewall. I’m not sure if the following setup is a good approach:
Remove current Spectrum router. Install new Arris SB6183 router. Connect the Arris router to Protectli FW6B. After that I want to connect to my old Spectrum router for wifi and also the existing UniFi POE swtich.
Do I connect old spectrum router to OPT 1 on my Protectli? Then connect existing UniFi POE switch to old spectrum router?
Or do I get another UniFi Swtich and connect that to my Protectli. Then connect my Spectrum router and the existing UniFI POE switch to the newly acquired UniFi switch?
any insight or help truly appreciated.
