Netgear D6220 as an Internet Wifi receiver

Hi all,

I am not a professional person in this field. So, apologies at first for non-professional wording.

 

I use an internet provider modem (let's call it "A"), which is working very well. However, I have a PC with no wifi connection card, and the only way I can connect it to the internet is through network cable. Previously, the modem "A" was next to the PC, so it was pretty easy to connect it via a cable. I moved to a new house, with no telephone line and network socket in the bedroom. Also, I have a spare Netgear D6220 router modem, and want to wirelessly connect it to the existing modem "A" (to have internet) and then connect it to my PC with a cable.

 

Is it possible? If so, please advise how. Keep in mind that I am not professional.. So, all responses in details would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

   Better idea: Let's see its maker and model number.  Presumably, it's
actually a modem+router, but I'd prefer not to guess.

   According to its User Manual, the D6220 lacks a "wireless bridge"
mode, so I doubt that it could be used in that way.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "bridge'.
Don't expect to find much.  Compare with the results for a model like,
say, R7000.

   Presumably your (unspecified) "a PC" has an available USB port where
a (cheap) wireless-network adapter could be connected.  (Or an empty PCI
slot for a suitable card.)  Or you could look for a different wireless
bridge.
