I switched from an Apple AirPort Extreme to the Portal. The Portal provides faster performance, but it seems to me that the Airport might be better in some regards (i.e. compatibility w/Apple services).
My thought was to set up the Airport as the main router (wi-fi turned off) and configure the Portal in bridge mode as a wi-fi access point, but I'm having issues accessing my home network from the outside and a least one app is reporting a double-NAT issue. As far as I understand, this shouldn't happen if the Portal is in bridge mode?
My current cabling:
Surfboard modem --> AE WAN port
AE LAN port --> Portal LAN port
