WeMo switches have to be reconfigured when unplugged

I have an XR 500 on the latest firmware (V2.3.2.40 +patch) and two WeMo plugs and a wired switch.  If I unplug a WeMo or we lose power I have to go the through the WeMo setup all over again.  The odd part is I can see all three in the XR500 device list as if they are connected.  However they disappear from the WeMo app and have to be setup from scratch each time.  This never happened before with my previous non-NetGear router.

Model: XR500|Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

I would assume this is because the IP they had has been released by DHCP upon disconnection/being unplugged. Give the WeMo plugs static/reserved IP address in Settings > LAN Setup, apply then reboot the router and see if it happens again afterwards.
