So, I would like to connect my 802.11n NetGear router to my Uverse modem. For one, to get N speeds rather than G speeds. And secondly, my NetGear router allows an external usb hard drive to be hooked up for everyone on the network to see.
So, I've tried to follow various directions online that help with this but am stuck. Here is what I've done so far.
- Disabled wireless on ATT Uverse router.
- Disabled DHCP on NetGear router.
- Set IP Address of NetGear router to 188.8.131.52.
- Connected ethernet cable from free port on Uverse modem into Internet port on NetGear router.
After doing all that, I cannot connect to the NetGear router wirelessly on my laptop. But, I don't get internet access. I tried to login to the NetGear router at 192.168.1.250 (that I assigned to it) to see what was wrong but that address is not recognized. So, although I can connect to the NetGear router, I can't access it's settings.
What am I doing wrong? Is there something else I need to do on the Uverse router?
