Connect Netgear 6220 to NBN fixed wireless?

Hello

I’ve talked to Optus tech regarding this.  They told me that I could use the Netgear modem by connecting it via Ethernet to any of the ports in the supplied Sagem device.  It doesn’t work.  My iPad recognises the Netgear and connects, there is a wifi icon showing but nothing loads.

I would like to use the Netgear as it is NBN ready and has a range extender which I need.

Anyone have a fix?

Stay Healthy

Do you need/want to use the Sagemcom? If not then you can plug the Netgear directly into the NBN box rather than the Sagemcom.

When you plug the Netgear WAN port into the FW port it should just work. If you need to go through Genie the config won't be ADSL relate at all because you are using the WAN port and not the DSL port. It should be straightforward.

Wifi and internet are two conpletely different things. Connecting to wifi only connects you to the router. Its the router that determines if you have internet or not.
