Guest network AP fix in latest firmware doesn't quite work

I finally got around to testing the guest network in AP mode on the latest firmware...and found it can't get to the Internet.  It seems the fix may have been _too_ good.  Smiley Wink

 

My upstream network is 172.16.0.0/24.  Connecting to the guest network, it would appear the Orbi (again, in AP mode) is DHCPing an address of 192.168.56.1 - which looks suspiciously like the IP you'd see on a router (the .1 normally being reserved for that) - and *no* gateway or DNS servers, so obviously things aren't going to get very far.

 

One more try, Netgear?  =)

I can confirm this.  Now the devices on the guest network cant get to the internet when the Orbi is in AP mode.  So close.
