      Netgear R7000 working on Fibre - easy method

      Hi,

      Sky Fibre installed yesterday and had read a few complicated methods to use my Netgear R7000.

      I came across this method that required very little technical knowledge - it which worked perfect:

      How do I set up NETGEAR R7000 router with my existing Internet Service provider router or gateway (such as AT&T U-verse and Verizon FiOS)? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

      I just followed the on screen prompts and turned off the Wifi off on the SR102 when prompted.

      Seems a much easier process to me than having to change any settings. I thought I would share as may help others who are not to technical either.

      Download speed 72mg over WiFi - happy days.

      Very similar to these - How to connect two Routers together and Using the DLink DIR613. except with a Netgear you have the assistance of the Genie.
