I am trying to connect a Netgear M6 hotspot MR6150 via IP Passthrough mode to my new Beryl AX via Ethernet.
I have followed the instructions from Netgear to enable this. It is really just click one box - “WebUI and go to Seetings → Setup → Mobile Router Setup → Under IP Passthrough, select ON” The Unit will then reboot. This also disables wireless.
The Netgear has an IP of 192.168.1.1 and I am using the Beryl default IP of 192.168.8.1 so there should be no conflicts. The Ethernet on the Beryl is configured DHCP. I expected/hoped some kind of a public IP to be available to the Beryl, but instead I get the following the Ethernet WAN interface:
IP Address: 192.0.0.2
DNS Server: 192.168.1.1
edit: I am sure this is due the CGNAT
I cannot get out to the internet. From a laptop connect to the Beryl I cannot ping the 192.0.0.1 gateway. Any advice to get this working? I feel like I am missing something simple.
- the Netgear Nighthawk works fine without IP passthrough turned on. I will get a 192.168.1.x address on the Beryl.
- I would like to use IP Passthrough to take advantage of the Beryl’s superior AX performance among other things.
- I realize that his is not a true “bridge mode” but falls somewhere in-between. I wish Netgear was more forthcoming about exactly what IP Passthrough does and offer a true bridge mode.
Thanks for any/all help.
