Yes, I confirm it is true. Just changed IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 and everything works fine.

The bandwith is shared between devices, making them slower. DHCP provides an IP and is dynamic, making it easy to add devices, A static IP means you have to assign and keep track of the IP's. Most people use DHCP.

SOURCE: Can I use the Netgear Rangemax wireless router as an access point?

Yes you can use it as an access point and hook it to your existing router, since this is a wireless router and can work as a wireless access point on your network............

SOURCE: Cannot access the internet after installing new NetGear router.

you need to change the IP address of the router. Plug just the router into the computer. Open Internet Explorer and go to 192.168.1.1. user: admin password:password. On the main page it allows you to change the LAN IP. Make it 192.168.2.1. Now unplug everything and rewire it correctly. This should fix the issue. Verizon uses 192.168.1.1 for the modem well so does Netgear and this causes the network to not function. So changing the IP of the router should fix this issue and has worked for me many times that I have done that set up.

SOURCE: Use Netgear WGR614 as an access point

Right, it won't work. The 614 doesn't have the software to make it into a BRIDGE or AP CLIENT. It can only be made into an Access Point, meaning it needs a wired connection INTO it.

A TP-Link http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_spe.asp?id=36 WA501G costs under $40 and gives you the ability to go from wireless to wired. It takes about 15 minutes to set up, and will plug into your DVR's ethernet port to extend your wireless network. It's programmed by setting the mode, AP, CLIENT, BRIDGE, etc. We use them in areas where we want to extend a wireless signal for distances like across parking lots, but it also will work across a room or two.

There are also wired ethernet extenders that use house wiring like the Netgear XE-102, about $80, that look like two wall transformers with ethernet jacks. You plug one into the router/switch and the other into the DVR.

SOURCE: I can't access the internet via my Optus Netgear

I am having exactly the same problem. It occurred on Sunday 17th. I have phoned Optus who seem unable to work out what has happened. It will work wirelessly but not recognise it when set up via ethernet cable.

Nat n300


You turn on NAT (Network Address Translation).

It turns local addresses into internet packets, so that the same device gets the response from the other end.
This router doesn't have NAT, only a firewall.

Set a static IP on the Canon printer
e.g.
IP: 192.168.x.x
Subnet mask: 255.255.x.x
Gateway: 192.168.X.1

DHCP should always be enabled on the router for your other devices to work.
