Issues with wifi after updating to V2.5.1.8


Issues with wifi after updating to V2.5.1.8

Updated RBR50 and 2 satelites today to V2.5.1.8.

Removed broadcast SSID on advanced wifi

Everything works however once connected to wifi, I was getting a login prompt (assuming router webpage) when testing to cnn.com on iphones. Like any URL was rerouted to default router IP?

No issues with wired connections, only wifi seemed to be affected

Changed back to broadcast SSID




Tested again and seems Intermittant issue apparently?

Any issues with the new firmware or maybe a setting I need to tweak?

What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?


I haven't seen this. I was one that didn't factory reset and setup from scratch. You might try this at some point on the RBR.
