Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r40559 std (08/06/19)
Netgear Nighthawk R7000

Trying to establish a guest network (before then heading to create an IOT network for wireless and wired devices). Getting bogged down at the real basics.

I set up the username and password and also enabled USB service and USB printer. All else left as default. Worked OK.

I then set up the 2.4g and 5g radios as SSID: xxx.net and SSID: 5g.xxx.net. Worked ok.

Before I added WPA2 security to my primary SSIDs, I added a VAP on the 2.4Ghz radio with SSID guest.xxx.net. This didn’t work ok.

When I connect to the APs, I can connect to the xxx.net and 5g.xxx.net but when I connect to guest.xxx.net, it connects but gets "no internet, Open" in Win10. IPCONFIG reveals I have no IP address assigned.

I tried rebooting the device and waiting, no joy.

As I said, this is really basic, not doing anything super special here (that is to come). I have not even begun the separate bridging.

Is there a guide on how to do this? I have been doing the changes step by step and applying them one by one.

Thanks for assistance.

Is this your gateway router? Also, you should update to 41686. Wink

There are a few guides, and a few ways to do it. I use the dnsmasq method, unbridged. Note that if you want to have the guest acct bridged, you'll need a startup command workaround. See the build threads for my release notes.

I was having this issue for months on my r7000 until i switched to the latest beta r41664. I used the DNSMasq method and it worked instantly.
