Nighthawk R7000 IP Assigning Issue
After I upgraded my Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router to the latest Kong Mod firmware version I've had an issue where I I'm only able to stay connected to my network, until I reboot my connected device(s). Once I reboot a connected device, it's unable to retrieve an IP address on my network, and as such can't talk with my router, or other devices on my network - let alone get ethernet access.
I feel like this is an issue with assigning IPs, but I'm unable to pinpoint exactly where the problem is rooted.
Once a device is rebooted I'll have a yellow exclamation mark on my network tray icon, on said device, and I'll be unable to troubleshoot it.
The router is using default firmware settings, apart from the custom administrator login/pw change. I tried adding DHCP static leases as well, but this didn't affect the problem.
My only "fix" to this problem has been to factory reset the router after a client reboot, and then take it from there, but this is obviously not an ideal solution.
Was hoping someone could shed some light on my issue. I have a feeling there is a simple fix, I'm just unable to identify it.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: If I assign manual IP under the Windows settings and point to my gateway, then I can access the router and ethernet. It seems to me like it's a DHCP issue wihin the router, but it honestly doesn't make sense to me.
