R7800 Port 443 issues Blink Camera

 I upgraded a WNDR3400 to a R7800 and amd very happy coverage and performanc wise.  I have a Blink XT setup that worked fine on the 3400 but on the R7800 I can access the camera and see live video feed.  The issue is the camera/sync module cannot communicate back to blink servers.  I contacted Blink and after 45 minutes of updating firmware, etc,  they told me to contact my ISP because my speed was to slow or port 443 was blocked. The speed is fine.  I contacted Netgear support and we reflashed the router,  tried port forwarding, she even tried to set the camera up in the DMZ.  So what am I missing here?  The router is translating ip's to 10.0.0.N I did reset at one point back to 192.168.2.N addresses. Firmware is 1.0.2.52.  I am surprised to be hitting this issue,  also,  I don't want to compromise my security by opening my router security too much.

Thanks

I am running into the same. Did this issue ever get resolved?

Yes, I wound up doing a hard reset using a paper clip and upgraded firmware. The odd thing was the port was available and support confirmed that . No explanation but the reset worked.

   If your R7800 is not using its default subnet ("192.168.1.*"), then
the usual reason is that its WAN/Internet interface is connected to some
other router which is using "192.168.1.*" for its own LAN, and the R7800
can't/won't use the same subnet for its WAN and LAN interfaces.

   Cascading multiple routers can cause multiple problems, including
ones like yours.

   What feeds the WAN/Internet interface of the R7800?  If it's some
kind of modem+router, then the usual one-router options are to configure
the modem+router as a modem-only, making the R7800 the only router, or
else configuring the R7800 as a wireless access point, making the
modem+router the only router.

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Use the Router as a
WiFi Access Point".

   How "the same" is your situation?  Have you multiple routers?

   Had it been working before?
