|I've got a Netgear R6250 running build 43381 (06/10/20).
I cannot seem to find a build that doesn't have certain flaws. So, I've settled on this build and elected to deal with the flaws. One of my current issues is that the putting my virtual AP (wl0.1) onto a new bridge (br1) isolates it from everthing. When I do this, wl0.1 has no IP address and br1 gets an IP address of 192.168.8.1. I can connect to the VAP using a static IP, but I can't ping anything including 192.168.8.1.
If I don't use a bridge and just isolate wl0.1 and give the IP 192.168.8.1 to it, it works fine. I just can't get it to work when attached to a bridge (as I've done with numerous other routers running DD-WRT).
I suspect there might be a solution similar to the one found here for a non-functional switch on a completely different setup.
