“Can I got ONT -> T3200 then have one port of the T3200 go to my router and another go to a seperate switch to distribute optik to various ports?”
Yes, you should be able to do this.
Hi - to use Optik TV (cable) you do not need to connect your T3200M to the router, the ports from the T3200M provide access to Optik. If the signal from the T3200M says that there's an issue then please contact our support teams for troubleshooting support!
I should clarify the T3200 is upstream of my router (port 1 in bridge mode) and my optik box (attached to T3200 now).
For reasons that are not clear to me the Optik box is now working off both the T3200 and router again after a few days of only working on the T3200.
It looks like I might need to keep that T3200 around for stability, but I'll talk with the fiber install tech when they arrive.
