Netgear XR1000 connecting back to Cisco WAN router

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me connecting my new Netgear XR1000 to my existing Cisco WAN router with static IP address. 
I had a Netgear R8000 which was working fine but the new Netgear XR1000 simply does not connect.

Hey, welcome to the forum!

I've moved your topic to the appropriate section. First of all, have you accessed the interface and gone through the setup wizard? You will need to do this before you're able to get internet.

Thank you for your promo reply. Yes I tried the setup wizard but it says no Ethernet cable connected. I have a Netgear R8000 which work fine when I connect back with the same cable.

connection setup as below:

NBN - Cisco C1111 router - XR1000

No luck still the same

How are you accessing the XR1000 interface? Did it seem to detect an internet connection when you ran through the setup wizard?

Could you please go to the XR1000 interface and go to System Information, in here, are you seeing a WAN IP under 'Network Status'?

The XR should definitely be getting an IP address, can you disable Firewall options on the Cisco, see if there is anything that could be preventing it getting an IP? Have you disabled DHCP on the Cisco for example?

Do you suggest to disable DHCP on cisco router ?

I have configured @cisco end - switchport mode access

No Firewall options configured on Cisco

Yes disable DHCP on the Cisco and reserve an IP for the XR1000 if you haven't done so already. Had you configured any settings on the Cisco previously that were for the R8000?

Tried with exactly the same config on the cisco router, R8000 works fine but the XR1000 does not. It should work with the cisco router as is.

For a start Cisco dont have UPNP but I'm training as a Cisco Network engineer and there are a large amount of Cisco C1100 units which is yours specifically ie is it a 8p or a 4p or a 4pLTEEA etc as some have 802.11AC built in and are much better than Netgear routers also Cisco kit does not like other brands connected tbh.

What is the config exactly? What did you configure for the R8000 that should now be working properly on the XR1000?

Lets wait to see if his Cisco unit has Wi-Fi capability and a up to date license.
