R2 randomly stopped working

Recommended Posts

This afternoon my R2 randomly stopped working. I can access dumaos and it says WAN IP - Disconnected. 

My setup is YouFibre fttp wall modem > R2 > PC this has been working perfectly for the past month.

This no longer works, yet when I do this YouFibre fttp wall modem > Eero 6 (YouFibre provided router) > R2 > PC everything works fine again?

I don't understand this, here are some things I have tried.

  • Restarting both the R2 and Modem
  • Different ethernet cables
  • Factory reset
  • Updated R2 Firmware (then factory reset)
  • Disabling IPv6
  • DNS override

Please can anyone help me with this issue, I dont understand why this just randomly stopped and the R2 no longer connects to my modem. I have a static ip address and my WAN IP is 192.168.4.21 when it worked

Thanks for reading

Restart the modem, wait 2 minutes, then restart the R2 from the interface, wait 2 minutes then see if you can get a connection. Sometimes modems/routers are finicky about the order they are booted in

Fraser thank you for your quick reply.

The problem was that I had to change the R2 Mac address to the Mac address of the router that the ISP supplied to me. Hopefully this thread helps someone in the future.
