Using W130 (W30 two units) as satellites with G36 modem router
Hi. I wasn’t sure which forum this post should go in since it concerns my wifi modem and mesh system.Previously, I used an Orbi CBR40 and two Orbi satellites for my mesh system. I’ve been having issued for the last several month with my wifi dropping despite no issues with my internet service. After going through troubleshooting and consulting Netgear forums, I decided to upgrade my system.I purchased a G36 and a W130 max mesh system. The setup of the G36 went off without a hitch, but I can’t seem to figure out the W130’s. Initially, I plugged a W30 module in to power and selected “add Device” using the surfboard central app. This didn’t work, so using the Ethernet cable I connected it to the G36 and selected “add device” once again. I got it to connect, but it was acting as it’s own router and not a satellite. After some research, it looks like I’m supposed to set it up as a “bridge” system, so I removed the W30 from the system/app and followed the bridge set up, but the app just trie
Anyone care to recommend appropriate Arris router to deliver high speed wifi in my house? I have Spectrum 500 mbps service and Spectrum-provided modem so looking for router only. Disappointed with another vendor’s router that when connected to the Spectrum modem delivered only 100 mbps wifi. Looking for Arris product that will deliver 300-500 mbps wifi with capacity to support faster speeds if I upgrade my Spectrum service in the future. Support for telephones not needed.
Virgin V3 in Modem Mode
I have a Virgin V3 Fibre modem Router, my set up is in Modem Mode and therefore acts as a modem only, during my set up I connected Via WAN Arris to #1 Out Lan on the V3 as it is the only port that has output - everything else is disabled. My connection during setup I chose the Fibre option but looking back it has its own WiFi and I am having a few issues keep going offline (think I should have chose the top one Cable Modem Only) and unable to secure a good Mobile speed check or internet speed check and the Lan connected appliances have no speeds attached, is this normal ? I have a W121 Arris set up.
How to wire and configure wired backhaul satellite
I would like to try ethernet wiring my AX600 satellite. What port do I use on the satellite device and do I need to set it up or will it realize that it is in ethernet? If I need to set it up, how? I tried plugging it in to an ethernet cable and it seems to stay on the wireless backhaul. How do I check the backhaul connection?
How do get my phone to connect to 2.4GHz instead of 5GHz using W31 Router?
Hello all, I have some household devices which will only connect to 2.4GHz wifi. With most that is not an issue but a few require my phone to be on a 2.4GHz network in order to connect the device to my network. My phone connects to the 5GHz by default. Is there a workaround? I don't see a way to steer my phone to the 2.4GHz side.Thanks in advance..
