Hi apologies if there is a similar post already in the forums.

Have just changed provider from Xnet to Telecom and received a new wireless router (TG582n). Thought I would take the opportunity to 'extend' my existing network.

Plugged in to the phone line is a Netgear (DGN2200) Wireless on and 1 port connected to Apple TV.

Transfer to Telecom happened on Saturday -  I didnt make any changes to the Netgear - and all seemed good.

Yesterday, I ran an ethernet cable from the Netgear router (under house) to the TG582n in another room next to the computer. TG582n plugged into the computer - all OK, excellent I thought.

I then changed the Wireless settings on the TG582n to match those on the Netgear (except channel - Netgear = 11, TG582n = 10) - so I would have the same wireless network throughout the house. Last night I thought it was working.

This morning couldnt connect to the wireless network, was greeted with the Telecom splash page, the ethernet connection to the PC was working and I had internet access.

Probably a rookie mistake! Would welcome a fix for the wireless network or description of the correct way to set this network up?

Many Thanks

Hi, sounds like the DHCP server in the TG582 is still on, this needs to be turned off.

Also you need to use non overlapping channels, so that means channels 1, 6 or 11, so change the TG582 to 1 or 6, 10 is part of the Ch11 occupancy.
