How do I add another modem to the Telstra modem?

Answered
Hi

I am wanting to add a 2nd modem (NETGEAR Nighthawk D7000) to my existing Telstra modem (TG800vac).

This is so I can extend a stronger wifi signal into other parts of the house.

Is there something in the settings I’m suppose to change?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

If you are connecting to the Telstra gateway as a access point and switch set up as per link below. and page 112 of manual

Suggest you change the WiFi SSID of the Netgear so that it is the same as TG800.
