Access point Nighthawk X6 AC3200

I am using the Nighthawk AC3200 as an access point. It is in AP mode. It is hardwired to my ISP modem. The ISP modem is already connecting to security cameras, point of sale computers, laptops and desktops on our office. The access point is in our ajacent warehouse. Whenever I plug the Nighthawk into our ISP modem it shuts down some of our computers trying to access the internet or limiting some hardware to aquire an IP. In the warehouse the access point Wifi works fine. When I disconnect the access point in the warehouse all of our main hardware works again. Is this a packet or QOS problem that needs reconfigure.

You may want to factory reset the Netgear router and set it to AP mode again it sounds like some strange Ip conflict is happening.

Should the AC3200 have the cable from the modem plugged into the WAN or one of the LAN ports. I have it into the WAN Internet port of the AP Nighthawk. I also have the AP wireless named different than the Comcast modem it is plugged into.

   None of that is a model number.  Look at the product label.

   You arranged this how, exactly?

   What is your "my ISP modem"?  What, exactly, did you connect to what,
exactly?  A cable has two ends.  Where do your cables go?  (Hint: If a
device has different types of Ethernet ports, then "connected to device"
is not enough detail.)

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Use
the Router as a Wireless Access Point".  What does it say to connect to
what?
