I have a firewalla blue device that is connected to a EdgeRouterX (router) in my downstairs living room. I have a Linksys EA-6400 (wifi routers) that is hardwired to the EdgeRouterX. The EdgeRouterX is the only one offering DHCP service to all devices in the house. Several wired and wireless devices hang off this 6400 router. These all show up fine on Firewall App. I also have a Wireless Bridge setup using two Linksys EA7300s to allow upstairs devices to reach the internet. One of the EA7300s is downstairs and is hardwired to the EdgeRouterX. The other EA7300 is upstairs in my home theater room and my AppleTV, Roku, Vizio TV, Blu-Ray player, HDHomeRun etc. are hardwired to this EA7300.
The issue is that the Firewalla incorrectly identifies devices that are coming through the wireless bridge. All the devices are on the same network and pull their IPs from the EdgeRouterX. They all access the internet fine without issues. But since the Firewalla is not able to identify the devices correctly, I cannot police the traffic from these devices. Anyone know why?
