Okay I'm tearing my hair out now, can anyone give me advice as to what I could be doing wrong?
PC uses blueyonder broadband/modem. I want to set-up the access point on this PC to provide internet access wirelessly to parent's PC and laptop.
I have set-up Netgear stuff in the past but I can't figure this one out. It's been reset to default settings - the main problem seems to be I can't get to the IP based configuration screen. Default IP is 192.168.0.227, but when I enter this I get nothing. Access Point is plugged into the PC via Ethernet, all lights on the access point are lit (indicating everything's good), green led on the ethernet cable indicating that's okay.
There seems to be no software to install, which I find a bit odd? Don't have a laptop to try the connection yet - assuming it'll work with default settings (will confirm in a bit) but the fact I can't access the control and password setting options at this point suggests there's another issue anyway.
Do I need to set a specific IP address / and subnet mask, in the installation guide it says if the PC is part of a network set the IP to 192.168.0.210 and Subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 (but this isn't mentioned in the install assistant). Also if i do this, the internet stops working anyway so i have to set it back to obtain automatically...
I feel very dumb right now, I need someone how can give me a step-by-step pointers guide
