EX7700 as AP


EX7700 as AP

Hi everyone


I'm trying to use the EX7700 as an AP, it's connected to my wired LAN on DHCP, it gets as far as looking for an internet connection then hangs, can anyone help or is their a setup page I can access to set it up for the network, I have other Netgear extenders on the LAN so I know they work but with the automated type setup the options seem limited as to how I can see what's wrong.


I can see it has an IP address from the DHCP server ok.


thanks for any suggestions

Re: EX7700 as AP

it should. Are you able to go through setup on it?

what firmware is it running? 

If the router is giving it an ip address, can you use that to access the router? 

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