MK83 pushes Wifi settings at ISP box !!

Hi

 

I have not been using my MK83 system since a little while and now encounters a very weird behaviour when putting it back online. I have resetted main units and satellite, made fw upgrades (pushed from 1.3 to 1.4) and then done whole settings of it. I then setup it in AP mode (my ISP box is **bleep** and doesn't allow bridge mode).

As soon as I plug one of the MK83 system unit in the LAN, my ISP box changes its Wifi settings for the ones setup in MK83 ! I have no idea how is that possible ! If I put back proper settings in my ISP Box, it's ok till one of the Netgear devices are back in LAN and then bam ISP box swaps Wifi settings !

Any ideas what's the problem there ? or how is it possible ? Is it ISP box using same Mesh technology as Netgear ? It's the ISP box from Salt (CH) and the box is Wifi6 (https://fiber.salt.ch/fr/home/equipment/fiber-box).

 

Thanks for your ideas, suggestions,
