Firmware Version:

I just set up my XE75 3-unit system. I can connect my phone to wifi, but none of my IoT devices can connect (Wyze cameras, Cync lights, Cync plugs, etc.). I've tried limiting the WiFi to only 2.4ghz, disabled beam forming and fast roaming, but nothing seems to work. I don't have any special characters in the SSID. 

 

My laptop (HP Zbook 15 g8) connects (it takes about a minute) but sees no internet.

 

Signals are very strong.


Any ideas why this is happening?

 

TIA,

bert

I figured it out - it had nothing to do with the Deco units. I had run out of dynamic IP addresses.I set up my router settings (updated thru 3 different hardware devices) about 15 years ago, and only allocated 50 dynamic IP addresses - way more than enough for back then. Who would have thunk back then we'd be using so many IP devices.
