So we just moved and using this modem/router combo was giving us spotty WIFI coverage throughout the house. Got a mesh wifi which solved that with using this Netgear device as modem only. I tried to connect my desktop PC directly to it as it still had another ethernet port available and I am not getting internet access. Even tried switching ports between my PC and the mesh wifi router. The latter works but not my PC. Am I supposed to activate something on the PC or on the Netgear modem/router? Or is this the norm for this kind of set-up.
