TP-Link VR1600v and Netgear R9000 Nighthawk X10

Level 2



I've recently signed up to HFC NBN with TPG. I was previously on TPG ADSL2 and used an old netgear modem router as my modem and my Netgear R9000 as my Router/Wireless device.


I would like to continue to use my R9000 if possible as I like the features. Am I able to configure my VR1600v to just act as a modem and again use my R9000 for all router and wifi features?


Has anyone done this already?


Hi @fionncolvin,


Welcome to the community!


We do not have information about Netgear R9000 Nighthawk X10. But if there is a chance on the Netgear's configuration to change its 'Connection Mode/Connection Type' to 'Router Mode Only' you can try to use that and sometimes it shows second option where you change settings to 'DHCP mode'.

You can visit this thread for additional reference.


Hope this help. Let me know should you require further assistance.
