#20615 new defect

PC receives WAN IP instead of DHCP IP after reboot

Reported by: von-k Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: Cc:


Occasionally, after a reboot, my wired PC would get a public IP address from my provider instead of a DHCP address from the pool I configured on OpenWrt.

Usually rebooting after this issue has occurred fixes the issue and brings everything back to normal.

When this issue happens i can't access my openwrt router at all but i can perfectly browse the internet it feels like the openwrt router has just become a transparent bridge between my pc and the service provider.

Trying to release/renew my lease on the client has no effect as i am still getting an address from the provider.

It also looks to me like the issue doesn't happens when i reboot from the web gui, only when i use the reboot command from an ssh session, but that might be a red herring

Does that happen also with the current stable release, Chaos Calmer 15.05?
(BB 14.07 is already retired)
