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.

It's probably the 87Us Quantenna chip

the network works... but i dont get info about connected devices on the 87u router,
it respond to a 192.168.*.* ip

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:
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.
yes i understand that but it respond to a 192.168 ip but show up in the discovery application like a 169 ip
