Nighthawk C7000V2 problems sending and recieving sms on phone

Started having a strange issue ever since moving to a new house and purchasing a Nighthawk C7000V2 router. I have been experiencing problems sending and receiving SMS messages only while my phone is connected to my router at home. If I disconnect from WiFi I can send and receive as normal, I have tried connecting to different routers at different locations also using Xfinity as a provider and SMS works with no problems.


I have factory reset my phone twice, router once, have searched and found other posts with similar problems but no posted solutions so I'm posting my own hoping for help.



Phone- Pixel 3 on Verizon

Internet- Xfinity/Comcast

Router- C7000V2

Firmware- V1.03.01

Model: C7000|Nighthawk - AC1900 WiFi Cable Modem Router

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:
