Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

After the update, did you try a factory reset? 

If that doesn't help, you can always downgrade back to the older version of firmware. 

 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

I’ve tried a factory reset. I’ve looked into rolling back the version a bit but is there a way to find older downloads?

Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

you could downgrade the FW, add your reservations, then upgrade again and the settings will stay tho it’s a hassle! 😇

 

that’s what I’ve been doing with the latest FW and the NTP // Invalid Mac problems! 🙂

 

the 6to4 was solved with using DHCP server option! 😀

Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

Thanks so much for the quick help. I was getting close to throwing my router and it’s 90s interface into a pond.

Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

I would use the word "solution" carefully.  LOL It did not work for me.,  I am at the latest firmware and this feature worked then but the upgrade, not only broke the feature, but deleted all of my existing address reservations #doublefail

Re: LAN Invalid MAC address.

I recommend using last working version of FW. 

This is a known issue and NG IS working on a solution.
