Router no connection, extender works fine?

So our router is saying there’s no internet connection, but when we connect to our non-netgear extender, we have a connection. This makes no sense because you’d think if there’s no connection, the extender wouldn’t work either. Any thoughts? We’re at a loss and the netgear support isn’t helpful because we need a support subscription.

Thanks so much.

Re: Router no connection, extender works fine?

What modem/gateway do you have the router connected to?

Firmware on the router? (you have the R6120?)

What extender are you using?
