I just switched from ATT Uverson to Xfinity. I had the Uverse router connected to the Netgear AC1750 and was using the AC1750 as and access point.
So I bought the Netgear CM 1000 to connect to the internet and then changed the ac1750 back to a router.
I have not been able to get this to work. Do I need an Router and not the CM 1000 modem to make this work and continue to use the AC1750 as an access point?
On top of this I also have a netgear gigabit switch to connect all my Ethernet devices.
Solved! Go to Solution.
First. Did you have the CM1000 modem activated for service by them ? And is the "Online" indicator light lit steadily ?
What about the first question about *actvation* ?
Yes, I did go through the activation process and had one computer online. Then I plug in the Netgear WiFi router model AC1750 and its lite shows internet is up but my laptops can't get anywhwere. Not sure if I have to use my username and password for the router or if it should just work.
Glad you got it sorted out. Happy surfing !
