Let us set up Orbi RBK352 as an Access Point

  1. You will see the Basic Home page of your Orbi router. 
  2. From here, go to the Select option, then ADVANCED.
  3. And then, Advanced Setup >finally hit the Router / AP Mode button.
  4. You will get the Router / AP Mode page.
  5. You should select the AP Mode radio button.
  6. The Orbi setup page will adjust itself accordingly.
  7. Now you need to select the IP Address settings on your WIFI device.
  8. You can get it dynamically from your existing router. 

The other device on the network will also assign an IP address to your router while your Orbi RBK352 will remain in AP mode. You can also use the fixed IP Address. After that, use this setting to manually assign a specific IP address to your Netgear Orbi login device while it is in AP mode. Using this option, you can effectively make any advanced network changes. You cannot use the Orbi app to manage your Orbi setup in access point mode.

WIFI setup on your Orbi RBK352-100EUS router

When our Orbi router connects to the internet, we should also set up our wireless network. By default, your router already carries a wireless network. But we cannot leave our router on the default wireless settings as it needs to be changed. Let us pick a new wireless admin password and optimize our WIFI signals after disabling the WIFI-protected setup because these can be hacked easily.

Open up the wireless network setup from the left side of the manual wireless connection setup. 

First, configure the 2.4 GHz band. Change the wireless network name from the default to unique, and keep the mode mixed on 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b. In this way, your entire wireless device can connect to the router, easily. Enable the option for auto-scan mode. So the router will find the least crowded Wi-Fi channel for you.

You have to configure the WIFI settings for the 5 GHz band the same way you configured for the 2.4 GHz. The one thing that you have to change is the wireless network name. If you live in an area with too much traffic on the Wi-Fi line, lower the channel width from 20 MHz to 40 MHz When done, save the settings to update the new WIFI settings in your Orbi router.  

How do I disable the Orbi RBK352-100EUS router WPS feature?

You should also disable the WPS feature to protect your Orbi router from being hacked. WPS is an easy way to connect to your router’s WIFI network without using a password. You can connect or pair any device with the router by pressing a button on the router. Or you can enter a pin code. Now the pin code is at the edge of vulnerability. A pin code is simple and easy to crack by hackers and other defaulters. So, it is recommended you disable the WPS button for your router. For this, you should click the advanced tab. And then, select the WIFI-protected setup from the left of the page. And then, disable it.
