NETGEAR AC750 D6000

Hi there.

 

I would like to use this router as an additional access point / wifi repeater on my existing wifi.

Does this D6000 model have a "bridge" setting or access point mode?

 

I do not seem to find anyting like that when I connect to it with Netgear geni?

 

I can hard-wire it to my existing router, but I will still need to set it to access point mode?

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

thanks

Joe

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "access
point".  I see nothing relevant.  On a D7000, it's at ADVANCED >
Advanced Setup "Wireless Access Point".

 

   However, almost any wireless router can be configured as a WAP.  See,
for example:

 

      https://community.netgear.com/t5/x/x/m-p/1463500

 

That's written for a Netgear C6300-as-WAP, but the steps are about the
same for any other router (any make/model) which lacks a one-step WAP
option.
