Devices blocked constantly

Hi there, for some reason my orbi keeps locking devices. When I log into the interface, they show us blocked and then I have to manually toggle them. After of time, the devices end up being blocked again. This is insanely frustrating as I always seem to have to go in and unblock devices. I know I could disable the access filtering, but I'm hoping to keep that on.

Re: Devices blocked constantly

What FW version are you using? Theres been others reporting problems with Access Control. Might be best to disable it until next FW update.

I'm not in front of my device but it is the most recent version. I checked for updates yesterday.

You might try a factory reset on the router and set it up from scratch, go in and do some IP address reservations for the devices you want to put in the access control, then setup access control.
