orbi not wanting to connect to wifi

hey everyone, 

i just bought a netgear orbi wifi system and everything was going well until it wouldn't connect to the internet. all the cables were plugged in correctly and i tried restarting the ont but nothing was working. i also tried changing the connection settings to pppoe and static ip (used ip addresses from command prompt), but i probably did it wrong.

 

any help? thanks Smiley Happy

Hi - I've just bought Orbi and have the same problem - did you get a resolution?

hey there,

its been fixed but we had to bridge it to our current vodafone router. we had someone come in and do this but there should be some good tutorials on youtube about bridging a router.

If you connect the WAN port of the Orbi Router to one of the available Ethernet LAN Ports on your VodeFone Router, everything works straight out of the box and auto-configures nicely.
