Hello,

 

Do you mean there is a TV or something that is connected to the VR400? Is the VR400 working as a modem only or as a modem router?

 

Basically, we suggest you configure the main Deco M5 as a router, as you will have all the basic and advances features when it is in router mode, while some feature may not available in Access Point mode.

 

Below are the details between Access Point modem and Router modem for your reference:

What’s the difference between Access Point mode and Router mode on the Deco?

 

If there is none of an issue with the existing system you've built up, you may just leave it and keep monitoring it.

 

Good days.
