Hello,

 

I'm new to the community here, but I've owned an AC 1750 Archer C7 v2 for several years.

 

With my kids forced to do remote learning for this school year I now have a need to improve WiFi throughout my home.  A couple years ago I setup a powerline extender on the second floor.  This helped but now we have too many devices trying to connect and coverage is still spotty.

 

I have an older cable modem/router which I'd like to plug into that powerline device and use as an AP.  I've tried to do this in the past w/o success, so I'm hoping some networking experts here can give me some step by step guidance.  This modem/router is the Motorola SBG6580 docsis 3.0.

 

Thanks!

Steve

p.s., ignore the model selected on the form above ... it is the AC 1750 Archer C7 v 2 - which wasn't an option in the drop down

 

I was able to figure it out ...

I was able to find this, look like it is from the Motorola support section: https://motorolamentor.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003023327-How-Can-I-Use-my-Motorola-Cable-Modem-Router-as-an-Access-Point-
