    169.254.x.x will be used if a device gets no IP from anywhere else or internal WiFi IPs AFAIK.

    Update: Seem I am correct, DHCP not working: https://www.quora.com/What-would-the-IP-address-169-254-x-x-signify
    If the computer is unable to find the IP address information, it uses APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) to automatically configure itself with an IP address.

    Is that just a reporting issue? Does your network still work as you need?

    If not, turn off all three routers and then boot them up one at a time, waiting for 5-minutes before booting up the next device.
