10.6: Avoid a DHCP issue with Dual Band Airport Extreme
Authored by: luomat on Mar 18, '10 08:21:24PM

My guess is that both the Netgear and the Airport were both trying to hand out DHCP addresses, and one of the "won" and the other "lost".

If the Netgear is setup to send out DHCP addresses, the Airport needs to be put into "Bridge mode".

That said, I'm not sure why the Netgear is there at all. Do you need more Ethernet ports than the Airport has to offer?

I agree thats what it sounds like. be sure the netgear isnt doign my dhcp serving if you want the airport to handle it with the wifi clients.

also I second the others, whats the need for the netgear router at all? if you need it for wired ports, be sure its not doing any routing or dhcp. turn off any nat or firewall.

Very first thing I did once bringing my Snow Leopard DHCP & DNS server online was to disable DHCP & DNS on my Netgear FVS338. I even rebooted just in case.
