AC1750 R6700v2 disabled some features in Router mode

Hello all.

I have Netgear R6700v2.

In router mode, I did not access to some features (they are gray out):

Internet Setup,

Wan Setup,

Lan Setup,

and more...R6700v2 disabled features.png Netgear is in ROUTER mode.

Why these features disabled?

I solved my problem.

Firmware version is 1.2.0.42_1.0.1

In front of router is modem TP-Link TL-WR740N (this modem was provided to me by ISP).

I called to ISP, and it told me to remove modem and to cable my Netgear directly to ISP. I did this, and now my R6700 works as router, and all settings are active.

Thanks.

What firmware version do you have on the device?

A number is more useful than "the latest". (It may not be by the time people read this.) There can also be newer versions, or "hot fixes", that do not show up if you check for new firmware in the browser interface.

 

It might help if you told people what the modem is in front of this router. The model number could be useful. Is it, by any chance, also a router, with a set of LAN ports on the back?

That is why I asked you what the modem was in front of your R6700v2.

 

From what I can see, that is not a modem, just an old and slow router.

 

TL-WR740N | 150Mbps Wireless N Router (Discontinued) | TP-Link Australia

 

That would certainly explain why you had problems.

 

I guess there is some other box somewhere that delivers your Internet.

This is a equipment (TP-Link) that I've got from my ISP to browse internet... Smiley Sad

Sorry, I have no idea what that refers to.
