MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

MR60 Firmware Version 1.1.7.134_2.0.65

 

Appears the Address Reservation "feature" is at least partially broken.

 

When going to the LAN Setup, the Address Reservation table is supposed to be shown ... hoiwever, it does not:

 

MR60 1.1.7.134 DHCP Address Reservation.png

However, when using the [Add] button (on the above view!), the Address Reservation table does show up:

 

MR60 1.1.7.134 DHCP Address Reservation ADD list is there.png

 

QA wa obviously on a holiday or watching some football, baseball, or icehockey game. Oh well ... remains the formal question: How shall we reports bugs here?

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

Checking my MR60 and MR70,

I'm seeing the IP addressed reserved devices being displayed on the LAN Setup page: MS Edge browser

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

Negative. Exactly the same behavior for:

Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Chrome Version 121.0.6167.185 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit) on Windows 11
Edge  Version 121.0.2277.128 (Offizielles Build) (64-Bit) on Windows 11
...no obvious errors on the console, except of a "Page Layout many be unexpected due to Quirks Mode" warning all over:

Same rendering result on Chrome, Chrome Beta, Firefox, Firefox Beta on all my Android devices, too. Back to the sender....

Ok, MS Edge was on Windows 11 Edge Version 121.0.2277.112. I just saw it updated to v.128. I'll check my MRs again after work.

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

Hard to imagine it's just about the very latest Edge only -:I see the problem since having deployed the MK63S list here to my playground initially, could be caused by the few IP-MAC reservation I have in place, too.

 

DHCP Address range is 192.168.50.2 ... .254 and the table of the (working reservations) is in your PM inbox soon.

I've expected to operate it on a dedicated VLAN in my lab, but found it does fail miserably on the LAN and it does bring down even more.... Oh well, consumer stuff 8-/

New "behavior": 

 

[Add] shows the table,

[Edit] does error out and return to an empty list.

 

Originally, I had reservations for two more addresses on the list: Two of the satellites, which I had renamed to MS60-1 and MS60-2 in the meantime.

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

The plot thickens ... several days ag, we had enabled Access Control and added one client to access.

...and the router does report some crazy DoS attack: Fraggle Attack ... and does also (crash) and restart without user intervention:

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

....and after editing the name of one device in the Access Control (a MS60 satellite) ...

...it magically shows up in the LAN List, too

 

Bugware - back to the sender for FIXES!!!!

Re: MR60 DHCP IP-MAC Address Reservation

What was the custom name of the MS in Access Controls. I'll see if I can reproduce this on mine. 

I usually leave the MS names defaults with slight change to the end of the name, i.e. -DR or -BM. Though I don't normally use Access Controls so I'll check on this as well. 

 

Give me some steps to set this up so I can test this out. 

 

If you can reproduce this all the time, enable debug logging on the MR and reproduce, then save off the debug logs. We can get them to NG.

Access Controls:

I see a couple of Fraggle attacks however this may have been my Galaxy pad conencting to the MR with it's WIFI Randomizer enabled. I had then disabled it and it reconnected to show real host name of the device:
