network connect

I connected the router and Netgear shows up as one of my networks. 

When I start my laptop, it selects NetGear as my preferred network...

But when I select Netgear ... and connect to it ... It connects, but I have no wifi with this network, so i have to go back and choose my providers network ... which sucks


Does anyone know the solution to this ?? 

Do I have to change an IP address ??

I'm lost ...

Re: network connect

When you say "choose my providers network" does your isp's network have wifi? 

that causes a double nat and can create issues.

Try putting the netgear into access point mode.

Or your networks device into modem only mode. 


what modem/gateway is it? 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
