Something strange has happened - I have a balance one core as the main router in a WISP network.
I installed a OpenMesh Cloud Managed switch 4 months ago and the router handed it out a DHCP address. Then 15 days ago the devices disappeared from the network and would not get a DHCP address again. I checked with my laptop and the router was still handing out a DHCP address to my laptop.
I thought It was a switch fault so got a replacement OpenMesh switch and plugged it all in and again the peplink router would not serve it a DHCP address. I tested both switches on a different network with a non peplink router and they worked no problem. I tried adding the switch as a DHCP reservation but that didn’t help either.
It would appear that the peplink router could not see the switch and/or would not give it a DHCP address. There has been no network changes - the only change was a router firmware upgrade 10 days prior to the switch no longer working.
Any ideas why the Peplink router has decided to stop speaking to OpenMesh devices?
