Where to install a firewall appliance

Here's a pic of our office network kit. The Arris & Ruckus devices are from Spectrum. We've been advised, or told if you prefer, we need to install a network firewall. We have a Meraki MX64 firewall appliance ready to go. But to where does it do? After the Cable modem but before the other two devices? After all three devices? Thank you.

    I LIED! I didn't notice you said office. Your 1602 is going to be for your phone lines only!


    So it really should be


    World>TG1672(in bridge mode)> Meraki> Ruckus

    You don't need the TG1672. The Meraki is a router too. (Unless you need it for a biz/static account.)

    @JTSEC As Lou Costello might have said, "You're a baaad boy."

    Thank you.

    Should note that the forums are normally for residential services only. Business internet and TV accounts have a differrent support organization within Spectrum.
