Hello I have the above model router working with my desktop but I am unable to logon to the router....I keep receiving a ....You may not be connected to your Router’s WiFi network.....so I cleared all browsing history & I use Chrome. Also have a wifi extender model WN3000RP (all lights are green) which my wifi will not pick up, this device is connected to my desktop by ethernet cable as is my router Any assistance would be appreciated thank you.

Re: Unable to log onto Netgear Router D6220

First you're posting in the wrong forum. This is the forum for dsl modem/routers.

https://community.netgear.com/t5/DSL-Modems-Routers/bd-p/home-dsl-modems-routers

 

2nd. when you post in the correct forum, focus on getting the D6220 working first. You can post seperataly about the extender once you get the D6220 functioning properly first. Otherwise it could be the primary issue with the D6220 causing the secondary issue with the extender. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> SXK30-> GS716v2-> Arris W31 x2-> Pi-hole->

   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.  (Or, if the Netgear router can
intercept your DNS queries.)  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" (for a plain
router) or "192.168.0.1" (for a modem+router), but it could be
different.  ("10.0.0.1" is a typical alternate, for example.)

   I don't know what that means.  What, exactly, is your "my wifi"?

"will not" 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 (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

 

> [...] this device is connected to my desktop by ethernet cable as is
> my router

 

   Huh?  Your "my desktop" is connected to both your "this device" and
to your "my router"?  What, exactly, is connected to what, exactly?
(Hint: If a device has different types of Ethernet ports, then
"connected to device" is not enough detail.)

 


> First you're posting in the wrong forum. [...]

 

   Sadly, that matters little, because that "You may not be connected"
error page is equally bad across the whole Netgear product line.

 

   There is a forum dedicated to "WiFi Range Extenders & Nighthawk
Mesh", which might be a better place for that question:

 

      https://community.netgear.com/t5/x/bd-p/home-wifi-range-extenders

 

(If you can find a way to explain what you're doing, and what's
connected to what.)
