Hello. We purchased a NetGear Orbi to add to our office setup.
Our current setup ISP Modem > MX64 >
I cannot figure out how to login to the wireless router to set it up. Please advise. Thank you.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks. I know how to configure the router itself. I am unable to access the router login page to configure because it's connected to the MX64.
I am unaware of how the port is configured. I've only plugged it in.
I tried plugging into the switch, and I was unable to set it up several days ago. I tried again after your message, and I've successfully configured it. Thank you.
Is there any security risk or disadvantage of not connecting the wireless router to the Meraki MX64?
If the Orbi has an AP mode, probably needs that. My guess the lan is static on a different subnet than the MX. The MX wants to do DHCP, but the Orbi isnt doing that on the LAN. You could try via the WAN, but then it probably won't be available. I would plug directly into the orbi lan and configure it to have a static private ip in the subnet with the MX. Then connect then 2 back up via LAN ports.
Thank you for your help. The first time I connected the wireless router to the switch, I was unable to receive a signal.
