When the recent firmware update came out, I did a backup prior to the flash. All my settings were lost doing the firmware update, so I did the configuration restore.
Now there is very strange behavior. My old SSID (Degnan_Kids) is present but also the generic pcwrt SSID seems to exist. On top of it, pcwrt ssid is unsecured! I cannot seem to secure it.
Two devices show that they are connected to the network “Master “Degnan_Kids.”” Another 2 are Wired. And, 5 are connectected to Master “pcwrt” which should not exist, but clearly does when I check what ssid’s are broadcasting.
@abe Please reset the router again. When you connect to the router and load the management page, it will ask you to do initial setup again. After initial setup, you can restore configuration – but select to restore “Access Control” portion only. You’ll need to manually change settings like WiFi, Dynamic DNS, Cloud etc.
Oh wow, that’s a really unpleasant thing to have to do. That’s the entire reason that I want to be able to restore settings so that I don’t need to do stuff like that. Is there any other way around this? Very frustrating. I’m going through it again tonight. For some reason I did not get notification of the reply earlier. I will check in again. But the issue continues just as before.
Hello. I did the reset, I set up the wireless, I set up the cloud. I restored the access control. However I do not have internet access and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Because I don’t have internet access, I’m replying on my phone but I don’t have a good ability to look up the instructions either. I use Charter Spectrum internet. Can you explain what step I’m missing please? I took photos of all of the setting screens and believe that I have them set up properly as they were before.
I know there is one difference for sure which is that override Mac address was filled out before and it is not filled out now. But when I fill it out and click save, it just disappears after the save as complete.
Hi, after several disconnects, restarts, and resets… it is working now. How frustrating! I can’t quite explain what I did, but I reset the router both using the GUI and the “restore factory default” as well as pushing the reset button on the back of the router… more than once… and unplugging, re-plugging it and the cable modem. Anyway, working. Thank you.
