    2 clients are connecting to RT-AC87U through this device

    Yeah. "Head in the sand" can be very stupid, but with some tech problems "Ignore and hope for update to fix" can be the best approach. I can't tell one from the other, though! Anyhow, I've read a few people's posts suggesting that it went away after flipping UPnP, or after assigning static, or...

    2 clients are connecting to RT-AC87U through this device

    No resolution for me. Just ignoring it. However, if it helps, I am NOT using Smartconnect, and have the issue on one ip cam, and on 4 vizio TVs.

    AP mode admin UI has a red X on it

    I have the red x, too. I have a main RT-AC88U, and two RT-AC86U running as APs. I had the red x on just one of them, which was on 45149 firmware, but not the other that was on an older firmware. Then I updated the other to 45149, now it has the red x, too. But, no problems at all in Internet...

    2 clients are connecting to RT-AC87U through this device

    2 clients are connecting to RT-AC87U through this device

    Update: to make thinks fun, now I have Vizio TVs doing the same thing. I do have four Vizios TVs. They also could be doing it as part of a wifi AND ethernet thing, but that doesn't explain FOUR showing on one IP address. WTF is going on? And my one Amcrest camera is still showing 2. All other...

    2 clients are connecting to RT-AC87U through this device

    BTW, bear with me in this post. I'm describing my problem, but it may reveal some info about the problems you're all having with "2 clients are connecting". I have the same behavior Martineau observes, also on an Amcrest IP cam. But I have a dozen of these cams, and only have this problem on...
