wndr3400v2 need help to convert to ap mode

I have been asking for detailed step by step instructions to convert my wndr3400v2 from router to AP to connect an ethernet printer via my r6120 router

 

The instructions in the manual are too clonfusing for a user it is more directed to an IT.

I have tried to follow the manual, which does not address the need to change the IP settins etal. Every time I try try to turn off dhcp and cahnge the IP address eg 192.168.1.250 and accept. When update is complete the unit still has dhcp on and IP is 192.168.1.1

   "have been asking"?  Where?  Did I miss something?

   At least one of us is confused.  What, exactly, are you trying to
connect to what, exactly, how, exactly?  And what makes you think that a
wireless access point would help?

 

> The instructions in the manual [...]

 

   Which "The instructions" in which "the manual"?


   If you're trying to make a wireless connection from your "my r6120
router" to your (unspecified) "an ethernet printer", then what you might
want is a wireless bridge, not a wireless access point.  And, as I read
the WNDR3400v2 User Manual, it doesn't offer that feature.

 

   For educational purposes, you might visit http://netgear.com/support
, put in "R7000" as a model number, and look for Documentation.  Get the
User Manual.  Look for "Use the Router as a Wireless Access Point" and
"Set Up the Router in Bridge Mode", and see which (if any) of those
pictures looks like what you want to do.

 

   Practically any wireless router, including a WNDR3400v2, can be made
to act as a wireless access point, but my guess is that you want a
bridge, not a WAP.
