Posted: Tue Jul 14, 2020 22:08 Post subject: Can't set local ip address
Router/Version: Linksys wrt320n
Previous/Reset: 43718, yes
Issues/Errors: The router won't take a new local IP address. The steps below work in 43718. Also, after setting Local IP Address and clicking Save, the autopopulated octets in Start IP Address no longer default to the octets set in Local IP Address.
Steps to reproduce:
Set Local IP Address
Unplug/replug eth cable
Connect to new IP in browser Unsuccessful
PING: transmit failed. General failure.

you have had to have done something different to get those channels. no one else with the r7000p has them
Here's the gory details:
I bought it brand new from Wal-Mart. I flashed 40270M kongac to it. WebUI reset. I tried configuring client bridge, repeater bridge, and repeater, all of which boot-looped. Got it reset after that mess, set 2.4 radio as client, 5GHz as AP. Been the same configuration since then. Flashed 43516 without reset. Flashed 43812 test build without reset. I *just* did the nvram set and commit and reboot earlier. I also have not used anything but FF ESR or IE to access it, save and except when testing to see if Chromium-based browsers were still problematic after flashing 43516. The damn thing only runs part of one of my test benches in my shop, and is only fired up when I actually need to use it... and I only recently decided to upgrade it to BS builds. Could it be possible there's more than one revision of this device? Could it be the version of Netgear firmware that was installed when I flashed 40270M? No idea. But I promise you, I'm not withholding anything, no tricks up my sleeve, not yanking your chain, etc.

I have 2 brand new Netgear R7000p routers and when first flashed and even after reset it will show only the upper 5ghz channels under 20mhz only. When you apply 40/80mhz these disappear as the screen shots show. They do come back if you apply 20mhz though. You can choose 80mhz and a channel and apply it and it will set it but then it removes other choices so you must go back to 20mhz to get them back for some reason.
I haven't been able to get the lower channels to display no matter how much I play with it.
