Router Problems

I recently purchased a Nighthawk x6 ac 3200. I live in a large house and the previous router ( 5 year old Asus) lacked the range that I need. The new Nighthawks range is much worse and even with several repeaters is poor. If I keep it I will need to set up more repeaters. I tried to log into the routers web page to see if I could make any adjustments, but even this was problematic and I could not find using the address that was provided. I've had good luck with Netgear products in the past, but this thing is very poor. Any ideas before I return this thing to Amazon?

To access a Netgear router's admin page, you should just need to open a browser and go to: rounterlogin.net

What happens when you try that?

There are apps to show where you get poor signal in the house. Get a Ethernet power adapter and plug into the room or area you need in the house. It will save you hassle.

I have the exact same problem, how can I solve it?
I had the same problem, and maybe I can help you solve it. My friend advised me to connect to the modem as an administrator and reset all settings to factory settings. I decided to try it and went here https://router-admin.net/ip/192-168-10-1 . I started to do everything according to the points, first connected to the modem, then reset all the settings to factory settings, then changed the username and password to a new one, and then restarted the modem itself. You know, everything worked out for me, now I can see how the modem works, and most importantly, there is a network connection.

Dead thread but:

It's always best to hard wire into the router you want to configure rather than trying to do so over wireless. Next, you can always use the gateway address to get into your router which can be found under ethernet adapters, status.
