Hello

I'm trying to connect VR600 to an existing modem router (it's from our cable company in Israel).

I was able to connect an older TP-LINK model (TL-WR1043ND) with wifi and wire connection.

When I try to connect the VR600, I get no internet at all.

If I don't allocate a static IP, it will get the same IP as the modem router, and will give a conflict between both.

If I enter different IP address it will give no internet at all.

I was trying to set it as wireless router, tried to disable DHCP, trie a lot of things that I read about, with no succses.

Can someone give me some hints or instructions?

The physical connection is between the wan/lan port in the VR600 to port #1 in my modem / router.

I need the VR600 for connecting my usb printer to the net (if it matters) and its far away from the modem router.

Thnaks a lot.

You can set it up as the regular wireless router mode or the access point mode to boost network. Considering you want to use the USB printer, you can set it up as the regular router first. 

 

Below is the instruction to configure it: 

https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/1731/

 

Before you change the operation mode, please go to network-LAN settings page to change the IP address; make it different from the main router; for example, if the main router is 192.168.1.1, then change the IP of VR600 to 192.168.0.1. 

 

May it help.

@Kevin_Z 

cant it be configured to be a wired extender?

like other tp-link routers

i tried your way, configure the other device(modem) to be on 192.168.1.1 and the VR600 to be on 192.168.1.15 while the modem DHCP range is 192.168.1.20-254

i turned off the DHCP on th VR600 but yet he cant configure the connection between the modem and the VR600. still there is no internet and the both networks works as two separated networks, and they cant see each other

@avici 

Good day.

Thanks a lot for your time and patience.

Have you seen this link to check your configuration: https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/2655/

Could you please help me check the IP address and default gateway when the device connected to the VR600?

Thank you very much.
