NETGEAR R7000 loop

Hello,

We bought a second R7000, to be an Access Point. After opening routerlogin.net, the first thing that came up was “we changed the default gateway to 10.0.0.1 to provide any issues”, since then, its only looping the the page “Updating Settings” the whole time. Already resetted the router via the reset button, didnt help. Also, I didnt click on any software update. I checked our router, he recognized the R7000, I tried to access it via the IPv4, also no success. Anybody can help me out?

Regards,
Twan

Re: NETGEAR R7000 loop

In AP mode you need to find out the IP address of the AP and use that instead of routerlogin. That latter one is only for devices running in router mode

Routing: NETGEAR R7800 - Voxel Firmware 1.0.2.78SF
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)

   Firmware version(s)?

 

   But you connected it to the original R7000 before configuring the
new/second R7000 as a wireless access point?

 

   Disconnect the new R7000 from everything (except its power adapter).
Do a settings reset on the new R7000.  Connect (only) a computer to the
new R7000.  Configure the new R7000 as a WAP.  _Then_ connect it to your
original R7000.

 

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

   "provide" sounds wrong, but that's what an R7000-as-router will do if
you connect it to another router which uses the same default LAN subnet,
"192.168.1.*".  If you first configure the new R7000 as a WAP, then the
R7000-as-WAP shouldn't do that when you connect it to another router.

   Not exactly true.  The various "routerlogin" names may work for an
R7000-as-WAP, _if_ your client device is connected to the R7000-as-WAP.
The new LAN IP address of the R7000-as-WAP should work from anyplace on
your (extended) LAN.
