    I am trying to connect a netgear orbi to a fios quantum gateway router,I was on netgear tech support yesterday for 1hour 40min. he kept insisting I just have to plug the orbi ethernet wire into ant lanport on the gateway I keep telling him according to what i have read I am supposed to shut off the fios router I tried it his way but then I have 4 networks my 2 from fios n 2 from orbi and I kinda know I should only have 2 which are from orbi. Can anyone please help me with? I am only slightly computer literate.

    What are these 4 networks you get? Are you counting the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz wireless from each router?

    If so, just disable both wireless networks on the gateway router. Search for the correct user manual or see if this one is close enough for your purposes.
