    I am trying to setup a netgear wireless router as an access point. The main router is a netopia. We cannot log in to the netopia because no one knows the user name and password. I am new at the company. Here is our situation.

    Netopia Router
    192.168.0.1
    DHCP Range 192.168.0.100~192.168.0.200

    Netgear WNDR3400 Wireless router
    192.168.1.1
    DHCP enabled

    I am trying to change the Netgear to 192.168.0.201 with DHCP disabled.

    When I hit apply I receive the message "THE IP ADDRESS CONFLICTS WITH THE WAN IP SUBNET. PLEASE USE A DIFFERENT IP ADDRESS.

    Could the problem be that we had a cable connected from the wall jack to the wan port on the netgear wireless router?

    Any help and advice is greatly appreciated

    That is probably correct.

    Here is a link to some instructions by another member on how you should add the second router:
