Mesh router with Vodafone Gigabox and Vodafone TV - how to set up?

    I have the Vodafone Gigabox with Fiber connection. I have Vodafone TV running from one of the ports. Everything else connected to wifi.

    I want to improve the wifi signal in the rest of the house. I believe a mesh system is the best thing, but I've seen threads (e.g. ) that makes mesh seem complicated to set up with Gigabox. I got a bit lost with different threads though and whether all the info is still up to date.

    Is it the case that I need:

    -a cheap Netgear network switch;

    -disable wifi on gigabox;

    -leave TV connected to Gibabox;

    -connect mesh router to Gigabox;

    -connect all wifi devices to mesh; ?

    Is the setup relatively easy for someone without advanced networking skills?

    Also which mesh systems would work well for this setup? I can connect the satellite units with ethernet through the attic if needed.

    thanks for any help.
