So i recently have bought a RE450, V2.0, AC1750. I have noticed a few problems with it unfortunately. So, the DHCP Server for the range extender mode is really unreliable, this is as a result of either: newly connected device cannot access the internet even after 1 mins of being connected to the extender (as the auto option uses by default 1 mins ip lease times). After looking in logs, it shows that DHCP Failed thus the device won't be able to connect to tghe internet until it re-connects with the network; Newly or previously connected devices cannot connect to the internet as a result of the DHCP Timeout Error. This is annoying for i have to turn the DHCP server off manually for anything to really work through either connecting to the Back-end wireless STA or through connecting to the Front-end.
I have rebooted both my router and repeater but every attempt at this has lead me to no successful conclusions. This is why i am writing about this problem to the community to hopefully find some answers or get a new update to be rolled out sometime soon to fix this.
(Also whenever the repeater is set a static IP address on the router and repeater, regardless if the DHCP server is on or not it still doesn't solve the DHCP situation, in status, it shows that the internet status is unknown and only when IP Address for repeater is static. When the IP address is static forthe extender, it works as well as when it is dynamic but i like to keep it static for the ease of access it provideswhen using a computer to access the admin page or a phone)
If you notice any possible errors in the text please reply telling me what i've got wrong. It's 23:52 (11.52pm) so i'm just a tired geek sitting at the computer writing this out of annoance for how this thing does not want to reliably work with DHCP turned 'On' or on 'Auto' mode (Not access point but range extender DHCP server).I have another extender and it's the RE210 and it works fine with a DHCP server whilst the router has the DHCP server turned on aswell but not the RE450. I use a standard 2018-2019 vodafone router if anyone wants to know (More details? Just ask)
