Help - Replace Spectrum Router (RAC2v1K) with SmartThings (ET-WV525), Directly to Modem (E31U2V1)

Hi,

Right now I have SmartThings ET-WV525, wired to a spectrum router (RAC2V1K), wired to my modem (E31U2V1). I want to remove the spectrum RAC2v1K from the equation, and have the ET-WV525 plug directly into the modem and serve as the sole router. (I also have 2 other ET-WV525’s meshed with the wired one.)

It does work, but i do encounter issues with Sonos, Ecobee, etc that I believe are driven by having this chained set-up. I also end up having multiple wifi networks - not sure if that impacts interference.

Has anyone gone through this process, or have troubleshooting recommendations?

I have searched on this, and have not found anything. When I’ve tried plugging the smartthings directly to the modem, it didn’t work.

Thanks,
Chris

Power off modem (E31U2V1) and SmartThings ET-WV525 for 1 min.
Power on modem (E31U2V1). Let it fully come on line. If your not sure what that looks like, let it sit for 15min.
Plug modem (E31U2V1) into SmartThings ET-WV525 port marked in.
Power on SmartThings ET-WV525, watch the leds and wait for it to come online

If that worked awesome, if not the led should tell you why.
