Internet not Connected

Both my R7000 and R8000 both in AP mode  say Internet Not Connected.

This is not correct as any device connected to either has internet connection and both Nighthawks can check for new firmware and download if available.

 

They have always done this . Anyone know why ? is there a fix - it is quite annoying.

Known bug (poor implementation).

When in AP mode the Internet indicator will not light as it is used for the r8000 being used as a router with the Internet from the modem to the WAN port on the router being used in router mode. This, in my opinion, is normal as the AP router is not connected to the Internet as such, but instead connected to a device that is connected to the Internet. This is how my r8000 is working as I write this and has been for several weeks.

Re: Internet not Connected

Almost convinced it's a) poor design, b) poor testing, and c) inability to fix design and implementation bugs in time.

 

The WAC510 had the exact same issue, nagged long enough during Beta, and (since market release) both the WAC510 and the WAC505 have the issue fixed. Figure.

 

Grave diggers at work - actively destroying the Netgear brand name reputation. Ridiculous.
