NETGEAR D6200 as repeater

Hi,

First time using this but hoping it will help me on my problem so im having trouble connecting to my netgear router setting because i want to change change the password,configure the channel around but after i connected it to my NBN moderm TP link the Netgear router setting page doesn't work  everything is working good only this problem  it is showing me "You are not connected to your Router’s WiFi network. To access routerlogin.net, your device must be connected to your Router’s WiFi network. Check your current connection and try again" i want to use this moderm as extender to expand my wireless connection  so does anyone have a solution around this by the way im on FTTN.

Any help would be great thank you.

   Firmware version?  What, exactly, does "as repeater" mean to you?

   You "connected" what, exactly, to what, exactly?  Hint: If a device
has multiple Ethernet ports, then "connected to device" is not enough
detail.  Does your "my NBN moderm TP link" have a model number?

 

> [...] the Netgear router setting page doesn't work [...]

 

   "doesn't work" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say
what you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

   Welcome to what may be the worst error message in the world.  For an
explanation, try:

 

      https://community.netgear.com/t5/x/x/m-p/1365830

 

   Briefly, the idea is that "[www.]routerlogin.net" (or ".com") should
point to your own router, but that's true only if you use your own
router for DNS name resolution.  Regardless, you should be able to get
to the thing using its IP address, if you can determine (or guess) that.
Normally, that would be something like "192.168.1.1", but it could be
different. ("10.0.0.1" is a typical alternate, for example.)

   If you can run an Ethernet cable from (what I assume is) your main
(modem+)router to the D6200, then you should be able to configure the
D6200 as a wireless access point.  Visit http://netgear.com/support ,
put in your model number, and look for Documentation.  Get the User
Manual.  Look for "AP Mode".

 

   If you do that, the D6200-as-WAP will get a new LAN IP address.  A
:routerlogin" name should work if you're connected to the D6200-as-WAP,
but from a device which is connected to your main router, you'll
typically need to specify the new LAN IP address of the D6200-as-WAP.
If your main router offers something like an "Attached Devices" or
"DHCP Clients" report, then you should be able to find the D6200-as-WAP,
and its new LAN IP address, there.

   Firmware version? 
1.1.00.32
What, exactly, does "as repeater" mean to you?
Repeater means to me being able to extend the coverage area of my existing wifi network

It is connected to the ethernet port on my tp link archer vr1600v that is my moderm/router

Once i was able to connect the Netgear as my secondary router to extend my coverage i change the setting on the netgear setting in the LAN set up tab  i turn off "Use router as DHCP Server" because i don't want this router assigning ip address only my main moderm will that which is the TP LINK and i change the last digit on ip address so it my accesspoint

   And how did you expect to connect the D6200 to your main router?
Wire?  That's not what "Repeater" means to most people.

 

> [...] It is connected to the ethernet port [...]

   Which part of that was unclear?  "the ethernet port"?  It has only
one?

   You don't want a "secondary router".  You want a wireless access
point.

 

> [...] i change the last digit on ip address so it my accesspoint

 

   What, exactly, did you change to what, exactly, on what, exactly?

 

   If you're using an Ethernet cable to connect the D6200 to your main
router, then you should configure the D6200 as a wireless access point,
as described in the D6200 User Manual.

Re: NETGEAR D6200 as repeater

ok but im still having trouble trying to get the router settings  i just plug an ethernet cord into my main moderm then connecting it to my other port router and then configure it to get wireless access but i want to configure the secondary router setting but i cant gain access to it 


 "If you're using an Ethernet cable to connect the D6200 to your main

   Regarding "can[']t", see "doesn't work", above.

 

   When you configure the D6200 as a WAP, it gets a new LAN IP address,
normally from main router ("Get dynamically from existing router").
(Or, less likely, from you ("Use fixed IP Address (not recommended)").

 

   Assuming that you chose "Get dynamically from existing router", your
main router should have some kind of "Attached Devices" or "DHCP
Clients" (or similar) report where you can find the new LAN IP address
of the D6200-as-WAP.


   If your client device is connected directly to the D6200-as-WAP, then
I'd expect the usual "routerlogin" names to work.  If your client device
is connected to the main router, then you'd need to use the new LAN IP
address of the D6200-as-WAP to talk to it.

 

> [...] do you have a video for this

 

   No.  I follow the instructions in the User Manual.
