    Can you just add to the primary DNS as well please and try?

    Still nothing. Again, went through all the steps this morning to try and just get this router to reset back to factory so that I can try and actually use it as it was intended. Hoping to see the light at the end of this tunnel soon. Thanks for your help.

    Newest update was this month .205 - could you unplug the WAN/internet cable from the R2 - then set a static IP on the PC:

    IP -
    Subnet -
    Gateway - 

    then see if you can access the interface when just the PC and power are connected.

    Hi Fraiser. Tried it, got nothing. Page wouldn't load.

    Typically this would be done using the reset button on the back. The reason you still have connectivity is because the R2 is just acting like a switch now, not a router.

    When do you last remember being able to access the DumaOS interface? Has it started behaving like this after any configuration changes or firmware updates?

    I hadn't used it in a bit because we were renovating the office here. I started using it again about 2 or 3 weeks ago. It went into DumaOS the first time I plugged it in and tried to get to the dashboard....and did so successfully.  Ever since then, it has just been doing the same thing talked about in this thread.....which is essentially just a switch with no ability to get to the dashboard.

  4. Is there a way to just set this thing back to the way it came out of the box? I've tried both unplugging it for a bit and holding the reset down for over 30 seconds....and neither seem to get this router back to working. Still strange though that I run both PC's through it without a problem. I just can't use the DumaOS functionality.

    Okay that's odd regarding the ports, is the WiFi active and joinable - even if you don't get internet? If so can you access the interface that way - if not can you do ipconfig there and see whether you see the same results please?

    The motherboards for both of the PC's in this office don't have wifi capabilities. I won't be able to join a wireless network with them.

    I don't understand how the R2 could've given you an address from the Xfinity's range if it was connected to it. Sorry to be a pain, could you unplug the WAN from the R2, reboot the R2 then in your command line type 'ipconfig /renew'. See if it still gives you a 10.0.0.x address.

    Liam, absolutely. But, before I do that.....what are you considering a reboot? Unplugging, letting it sit for a bit and then plugging it back in? Or holding reset for 30 seconds and then releasing the reset button?

    Hold the reset button of the R2 down for 30 seconds, release then wait 1-2 minutes then try to access using the address.

    I've done that.....same result. In fact..... I just tried it again, and after holding in the reset for over 30 seconds, it wouldn't even reset.

    So this was just PC > ethernet > R2 LAN port and just that can power connected to the R2? I'm not sure how it would have been able to tell it was using comcast DNS as it shouldn't have had internet. What happens if you access now?

    Yep. I actually just did it again with the same result. I'll post both screenshots. One of after it would not load and then right after that, I an command and still got a default gateway with that address....

    Yes, but don't connect the WAN again. So unplug the WAN, unplug the R2, wait 30 seconds or so, plug the R2 back in again.

    Then run 'ipconfig' and see what the output is, you won't have an internet connection, I'm just curious as to whether it will give you a different IP.

    Uplugged the WAN from the R2, went to the command prompt and typed in ipconfig and this is what I got. It looks pretty similar. Same even with no WAN in.

    That's strange! Sorry for any confusion caused. Could you disconnect the WAN cable from the R2 and reboot it. Once it's back up, run ipconfig again and see what address you get this time.

    Just gave it a try.....same one as before. By rebooting it, I assume you just mean unplugging it, unplugging the WAN line, plugging it back in letting it boot up and then re-connect the WAN. I didn't "reset" it because you didn't mention anything about the reset button on the back.

    Are you definitely connected to the R2? If you navigate to in your browser, where does that take you?

    That address is for the Xfi router/modem from Xfinity, but yes, that PC is lan in right from the R2. That’s what I was trying to explain. I’m def going into the R2, but it’s coming up with that address in ipconfig.

    Open Command Prompt on the PC, then type


    and press enter and post the results here please. On the results you'll see a gateway entry with an IP, try to access using that IP instead please.

    I probably should've mentioned, I'm getting ethernet to the R2 from an Xfinity Xfi modem. This PC however is running directly from the R2. Also, at one point, right when I hooked the R2 up, I was able to get to Duma OS. I need 6 lines for connection in this room, so both routers I have don't have enough lan outputs by themselves.
