7000DLE MKII Black - IP Dissapears After A Few Seconds

Postby mcindan » Sat Feb 27, 2021 4:03 pm

I have a brand new 7000DLE MKII (Black Edition) just out of the box. When I connect it to my router I see an IP assigned as expected but then it disappears after a few seconds.

The radio in NOT in bootloader mode. When I put it in bootloader mode and power on, NO IP is assigned.

Any Ideas on where to start?

I could not get DHCP to work so I set the IP using the bootloader and installed protocol 2 v2.0.b firmware while I was at it.

Once the radio was rebooted (non bootloader mode) I could ping the IP I set above and Thetis v2.8.11 is now working.

Any ideas on what might be going on with DHCP, where the IP is set then it disappears?

What do you mean by "disappears"? What tool are you using to check the IP? If it is ping, you should know that neither Protocol 1 or Protocol 2 provides reliable ping responses. Chances are it was/is working just fine with DHCP, just not with ping.

I am looking at the router (RT-AC68U) list of clients. For some reason the IP appeared in the list when the radio is first powered on but then disappears from the list after a few seconds. No issues with ping since I set the IP address via the bootloader.

I will use a static IP going forward - I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced an issue like this.

For the record, DHCP works perfectly here on an 8000 (same board as the 7000) under both P1 and P2 firmware.

Thanks! I suspect it is an issue with the router. Since all is working via the static IP I will leave it for another day.
