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.

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