I am an Optimum customer and have their D-Link wireless router set up for my main network. I added a Netgear WNDR3400 router as an access point to my network, to extend the range and connected this router via a Linksys Powerline 500 wired network expansion kit.
All is working fine and has been for over a year. But recently the access point stopped broadcasting and a power restart did not fix the issue. I moved the Cat5 cable coming from the Powerline device into another port on the Netgear router and it started broadcasting once more. Problem solved.
I then wanted to check the settings on the Netgear access point router and tried doing so via Internet Explorer. After entering the proper IP address, I was prompted to enter my User Name and Password, as expected. But what happens next is not expected. IE opens to a blank screen and I am not taken to the Netgear GUI.
I realize that I can perform a complete reset on this Netgear router but I'm trying not to, so I don't have to set up the access point all over again. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
