An iPad has connected to WiFi on a Surf SOHO many times before, but now its having problems. The interesting thing is that in the Client List the iPad has shown up with an IP address of 169.x.x.x and now it is showing with an IP address of 0.0.0.0. The network uses a standard 192.168.x.x subnet.
The Client List says its connected to the WiFi network and displays the correct MAC address. Of course something is wrong, but **what, if anything, can be learned from these obviously invalid IP addresses? **
The event log has a trace of all DHCP assignments and needless to say, the router did not give out either of these IP addresses. Router was running firmware 6.3.1. I updated to 6.3.3 and rebooted, but no obvious change.
