Use the Router as a WiFi Access Point Only

By default, the router functions as both a router and a WiFi access point (AP). You can set up the router to
function as an access point only and let it operate in the same local network as another router. When the
router functions as an access point only, many of its router-related features are disabled.
Tip
If you want to change the router's function, use a wired connection to avoid being
disconnected when the new function takes effect.
To change the router to access point mode only:
1.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the yellow Internet port on the rear panel of the router to a LAN port
on the other router.
2.
Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the network.
3.
Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.

Description
The fragmentation length (the default is 2346), the CTS/RTS threshold (the default
is 2347), and the preamble mode (the default is Long Preamble) are reserved for
WiFi testing and advanced configuration only.
Do not change these settings unless directed by NETGEAR support or unless you
are sure what the consequences are. Incorrect settings might disable the WiFi
function of the router unexpectedly.
