How to set up R7000 as extension of primary RBR50 router for video camera use

I have a R7000/AC1900 router connected remotely via CAT 5 through an EZ bridge PTP wireless connection(s) through powerline extenders thru CAT 6 to an Orbi RBR50/AC3000 router to a Hughesnet modem for ISP service.  I can get connection to the internet fine as is and I'm using the the R7000 to extend the wireless coverage on our property.  However I want to install wireless cameras to that router and see them remotely via the web..  However I cannot because all the device IP addresses on the R7000 are 10.0.0.x addresses in the current mode.  What mode do I need to set the R7000 to so that cameras will be visible via the internet?  AP, Bridge or Repeater Mode? 

Model: R7000|AC1900 Smart WIFI Router

   Starting that description at the ISP end might have been clearer.

 

> [...] to a Hughesnet modem [...]

 

   Not a very detailed description of anything.  Is it a simple modem,
or a modem+router?

 

> [...] all the device IP addresses on the R7000 are 10.0.0.x [...]

 

   And, presumably, other devices are on one or more different subnets?

   If you already have cables (or cable-equivalents) connecting these
things, then, most likely, AP.


   Generally, you probably want one router (so, one subnet).  If your
(unspecified) "a Hughesnet modem" is not a router, then I'd guess that
the RBR50 should be your one router.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number
("R7000"), and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for
"Use the Router as a Wireless Access Point".

 

   Note that if you need to configure port forwarding to enable remote
access to your (unspecified) "wireless cameras", then that would be done
on the router, not on the R7000-as-WAP.
