75 mbps service - MESH questions

I recently switched from Xfinity to Comcast Business to cut the cable cord.  Very happy with the results, except the Pegatron modem/router  Comcast Business provided doesn't send a very high signal strength to Roku TVs at the perimiter of the building.  I intend to install a mesh network, but the Pegatron modem/router seems redundant on the router side. 

 

I think I just need a modem compatible with Comcast Business to connect to the first mesh node to start the mesh.

 

Am I on the right track? Or can I turn off the wifi from the Pegatron and just plug the first mesh node into the ethernet port?

 

Thanks in advance for help.

Hi RGoodwin and welcome to the business forums.

 

Thanks for your question on the Comcast Business equipment. As long as you do not need a static, you are able to purchase your own modem/gateway. Here's a list:

Also, you are able to use bridge mode or passthrough mode with your own router as well:

Please let me know if you need anything.
