    I'm having a reoccurring issue where wireless devices are being assigned a wrong IP/DNS address. Wireless devices still connect to the 2.4 or the 5ghz bands but there's no internet connection. When I check the info distributed to the devices the DNS is 192.168.1.249 when it should be .1. The quick solution is to toggle between the 2.4 and 5 ghz band until the DHCP server finally assigns the correct DNS and a different IP.

    With connection dropping due to instability or a hand off occurring when moving between rooms, this is happening very frequently. I've seen this issue pop up on multiple wireless devices.

    I'm currently running a 3 router setup. 1 RT-AC1900P main node and 2 RT-AC68U models as AI Mesh Nodes. All 3 are running firmware _32799. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The device with IP address 192.168.1.249 is acting as a DHCP server, it shouldn't be. Try to identify the device with that IP address and fix its setup.
