hi, I agree chaninging the dsl setting should help, but ath tis what I was being told to fo through various private messages. It does seem to me that the archer does not want to be an access point and keeps looking for an internet connection I have changed the cable to the WAN and it made no difference except now i couldn't log onto it through my normal home network anymore. On any other router, we just disable DHCP and set the access point IP to something different to the main modem/router and connect LAN to LAN. Why isnt it that simple wit htis modem? Please advise the DSL and EwAN settings to make this an access point

Hi, I am trying to set up the tpg modem as an access point to expand WiFi coverage. My main netgear modem router ip is 188.8.131.52 and it is the dhcp server, I don't want to use the archer here as the netgear is better unit for downstairs coverage and speed. I disabled dhcp on the archer and set it's up in the dhcp range of the netgear unit, connected via lan to lan. The netgear sees the archer, gives it the resreved ip and i can log into the archer at its ip through the netgear network. Problem is the archer insists it is not connected to the internet and when I use it's WiFi I can't access internet. I am suspecting it is locked to be the vdsl connected device and doesn't want to be an access point. Can you please confirm if this is the case else advise any particular setting that needs to change?
