orbi rbk 53 ip adress, how to change

Hi, I notice I can not change the ip address of my Orbi 53 (only app?!?). I am connected to a Zyxel T-50 modem. They both have the same ip-address and that gives problems with a lot of websites.

Thanks.

What Firmware version is currently loaded?

What mode is your ISP modem working in? I believe it has a built in router already. This would be a double NAT (two router) condition which isn't recommended. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT
https://kb.netgear.com/30187/How-to-fix-issues-with-Double-NAT
Couple of options,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge or modem only mode. Then use the Orbi router in router mode. You'll need to contact the ISP for help and information in regards to the modem being bridged correctly.
2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modems DMZ/ExposedHost or IP Pass-Through for the IP address the Orbi router gets from the modem. Then you can use the Orbi router in Router mode.
3. Or disable all wifi radios on the modem and connect the Orbi router to the modem, configure AP mode on the Orbi router. https://kb.netgear.com/31218/How-do-I-configure-my-Orbi-router-to-act-as-an-access-point and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7LOcJ8GdDo&app=desktop

 

Any IP address changes need to be effected using a web browser connected to the RBRs web managmenet page at orbilogin.com

Can you please report the entire product model number?  When I search for "Zyxel T-50", it appears that there are a number of Zyxel products which end in T-50.

According to the product description, this combination DSL modem/router/WiFi can be "extended" to provide whole house coverage:

https://www.zyxel.com/products_services/Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-N-VDSL2-Combo-WAN-Gigabit-IAD-VMG8825-... 

i.e. it appears to be very much similar to the Orbi product except that it includes the DSL/fiber capability, provides phone lines, and VLAN for IP video.

For now you could disable the wifi radios on the modem and configure the Orbi for AP mode.
