    JF, it is likely the second one is not compatible with Simple mode.  See if you can try DHCP mode.    Most of our testing are with US routers, will try to see if I can get my hands on one of these.

    I made some tests

    * Reset the firewalla

    * Allow UPNP traffic on the router

    It works during a few minutes only. To allow internet access on the devices, I have to switch 'monitor' to off.

     

    I will try DHCP mode... but as there is also IPTV going through the router, there are some limitations.

    Hello JF Gregoire,

     

    I see it has been 1 year now but did you get Firewalla working in DHCP mode?

    Hello JF Gregoire,

    Thanks for your response!

     

    I also have a 7490 Fritzbox router and I like it a lot.

    So you are not using the Firewalla or did you change router?

     

    Kind Regards,

    Are you having problems getting 7490 onto DHCP mode?  And specifics?  We do have few customers already using DHCP mode with that router.

    Hello Firewalla,

    I am still waiting for my blue Firewalla:-)

    Preparing what to do when I receive it.

    F.i. I have some devices who's IPv4 adres is fixed based on MAC adres.

    Furthermore I would like to keep the same network adresses (192.168.1.xxx).

    Kind Regards,

    Kamille

    I use a firewella blue at home on my Cable connection (6490)

    The 7490 was a test. Moving to DHCP mode was requiring a complete re-setup of the network. Then abandoned

    The upcoming beta release should have the ability to change network IP address from 192.168.218.x and also reserve IP.  We are still going through alpha test

    @deluxedadda  can you reference this article https://en.avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-4040/knowledge-base/publication/show/201_Configuring-FRITZ-Box-to-always-assign-the-same-IP-address-to-a-network-device/  it does describe how to turn on DHCP, assuming off is just the opposite.

    @Kamille depends on your router, if it is 7490, the production software is fixed at 192.168.218.x network.  But the upcoming (and we are doing the final code reviews now ...)  beta should allow you to change the network address and also fix MAC to IP mappings

    Switch of IPv6 support with your FRITZ!Box. After some hours of trying i figured that this fixes all problems for me.
