Hi,

I flashed my Netgear R7000 with the latest build and I am having trouble making the router obtain an IP address from my ISP.

I have the R7000 connected (through the WAN port) to the Netgear C7000 (set as modem-only mode) but no WAN IP is assigned to the R7000.
I set the MAC address of the R7000 to be the same as the C7000.

Is anybody having similar issues?

Thanks!

Make sure the C7000 and R7000 are not both using the same local IP address 192.168.0.1. Change the R7000 to a different subnet... these devices have to communicate with each other to established the WAN connection.

Cheers.

I am using the C7000 as modem-only, so I connected one of the LAN port of the C7000 to the WAN of the R7000, why does it matter the LAN IP address of the R7000?

Anyway, I tried to change the subnet, but no luck.

The regressions and bugs are getting ridiculous, not to mention bricking, dd-wrt seriously needs to implement unit testing and someone should setup a rack of most popular router devices and automate testing of new builds. I use Kong's build on my R7000 even though development of it stopped.

Maybe that someone can be you. Run with it, it’s your idea.
There is one guy making the firmware. How many routers are supported? You want him to test every unit.
I’m sure he will since we pay him big money to do this.

Sounds like someone needs to buck up and carry the torch after they set up a development environment for DD-WRT and submit patches. I have fought all day to find a comment that wasn't brutally offensive.
