Connecting

I’m trying to connect this to a PS4 in a different room to the modem. I have calibrated the router but for some reason I can’t get it to connect. When I go on the app it says that the internet is offline. Does it always have to be wired to the modem?

Re: Connecting

What modem do you have? 

If its a modem/router combo device, then you could put the R7000 in bridge mode. 

but if its a modem only device, the router does need to connect to the modem

I’m not sure exactly what router it is to be be honest

Re: Connecting

If you look at the label on it, it should have a model.

that'll tell us if its a modem, if its a modem/router combo device, or what it is exactly. 

If its a combo device, then you could setup the R7000 in bridge more or even use it as a repeater
