Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 3.0.2 Build 20200313 Rel.47458

I have the same problem as described in these posts where the clients (max 50 machines) face "DNS not resolved" error in Chrome, all of a sudden after 10-15 mins due to DHCP crashing and not resolving DNS.

I tried to disable all firewall attack defense options but still the problem prevails.

 

The only way I can resolve this problem is to disable the DHCP in the router and run a separate DHCP server.

 

Firmware: 

3.0.2 Build 20200313 Rel.47458

 

Hardware:

TL ER6120 v3

 

While the issue is resolved by running another dhcp, I still would like to know why can't this router handle 50 clients simultaneously?

I am a bit confused, is your current problem with DHCP or DNS?
Is the client that is having this problem getting an IP properly?
If you are using a separate DHCP Server, have you also set up a new DNS?
Or are you still using the ER6120's DNS?

Just striving to develop myself while helping others.

Problem is with DHCP, specifically DHCP server is sometimes not giving out ip address and not resolving DNS queries.

 

We setup another DHCP with the same DNS primary/secondary IPs as configured in ER6120 and disable the DHCP in ER6120. Everything works well.

 

So the issue is not with DNS primary/secondary IP servers, only with ER6120 not able to handle DNS queries.
