I just installed my new s1300 but after using Netgear for a long time this is a bit confusing. I’m using my c6300 as modem only with s1300 as router. Im not getting the full internet signal, I also don’t know whether I should be using the repeater. As a mesh if I install a node does it have to be hook up to internet or just power? Thanks.
- Turn off WiFi on C6300
- Connect LAN port from C6300 to WAN port on S1300
2a. Make sure that the C6300 is on different IP subnet ( should be as it looks like it defaults to 192.168.1.1 and your S1300 should be 192.168.8.1)
- This should give you internet to the S1300 and WiFi via the S1300
- For Mesh have a look here (same as B1300). Only the master node needs to be hooked up to the internet.
