Connecting Meraki MX and AP with Netgear Modem/Router Combo
I am very new to networking and have a very novice question. I have some Meraki gear for home use (an MX and AP), which I have initially connected to the internet via my existing Netgear modem/router combo device (Netgear>MX (via ethernet)>AP (via ethernet)). Will using the Netgear device as my modem create an inefficiency in my set up and slow down internet speeds? I assume this is especially likely to be the case if both the Netgear and Meraki AP are broadcasting their own SSIDs simultaneously. I probably need to login to the Netgear device and figure out how to turn off its wifi at a minimum.
My recommendation would be to remove the Netgear completely. Secondary recommendation would we see if you can put the Netgear in "AP Only Mode" then connect it behind the MX along with the MR(Meraki AP), giving you better Wifi coverage.
Is there a specific reason you want to or need to leave the Netgear in the config?

Thanks! Yes, modem is inside the Netgear. I tried to check the model in Netgear Genie, but I cannot remote in--I have to access locally. I'll check it out and update after I get home tonight. Thanks for your help.
