OK I cannot for the life of me work this one out, and Google is not helping as all searches point me to a very very similar, but different problem.
I have a pretty intricate home network as we are in a new house with hard wired ethernet ports all over. We have a modem/router upstairs providing Wi-Fi to the house. Range is crap downstairs so I found an (almost?) identical netgear router (which I think is just a router - not a modem) so I have installed that downstairs functioning as a switch in the downstairs living room (to connect the amp, set top box, Foxtel, PS4 etc) but also double as creating a different downstairs access point so you can get good service downstairs.
Problem is, it was set up in our old joint doing the same job and I’ve forgotten the Wi-Fi password. The Wi-Fi network exists but I need to work out the password. I know the standard response, wack 192.168.0.1 into Chrome but that brings me to the settings for the main modem/router and not this “dumb” one that’s just a switch and Wi-Fi point. I’ve taken a laptop to this specific box, plugged it straight in via ethernet and put in both 192.168.0.1 and the recommended (on the sticker on the unit) 192.168.1.1 and got nothing. I’ve also tried on my desktop 192.168.0.1-30 and got all sorts of things such as printers etc but no netgear router.
