RAX70 requires me to login to wifi repeatdly

This happens on all of my wifi 6 enabled devices. It goes to captive portal authentication and keeps asking me to login to wifi like it is a hotel public network.

You have the Rax70?

Firmware on it? 

What modem/gateway is it connected to? 

Wired devices don't have an issue?

It seems to be sending me to a captive portal. I have wpa2 on, firmware is 1.0.3.92, it is the RAX70. Doesn't happen on wired devices.

Re: RAX70 requires me to login to wifi repeatdly

the 844g is a modem/router combo device. It causes a double nat. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT

options? (only uses 1)

1. put the calix in modem only/passthrough mode. (not all passthrough modes work properly)

2. put the netgears IP address into the Calix's DMZ

3. put the netgear in access point mode.

Would the dmz be the best option?

the best option would be what works for you and you're able to do easily in the future. 

All of them would work but each has their own +/-'s

I put it in the DMZ, now I get occasional DNS errors. What are the plus and minuses for all of them?

1. putting the ISp device in modem only/passthrough mode. Cons- sometimes the isp doesn't set it up properly and you still run into issue. Or sometimes the isp doesn't have this mode. or it can impact TV service through the isp

2. Using dmz. Again, back tot he sketchy ISP service. Frequently with ISp supplied devices, we see issues with passthrough mode/dmz mode not setup properly. 

3. Access point mode. It disables some features on the netgear router. If you don't use them or if you use them on the ISP router, then it isn't an issue. https://kb.netgear.com/26765/Which-features-are-disabled-on-my-NETGEAR-router-when-it-is-set-to-AP-M...
