I manually configure DHCP addresses for all of my devices. Doing this makes managing my home network easier. Using Network List, I can easily find guests/visitors logged into my WiFi.

All of a sudden the manual DHCP table became corrupt and a block of four IP addresses (in succession) were assigned wrong Mac addresses and those devices were assigned pool addresses.

I corrected the manual DHCP table, applied, and rebooted the router. After confirming that manual DHCP table remained intact, I viewed the Network List and found that nothing changed in terms of IP addresses. I checked a couple of those devices and found that they had the IP addresses as assigned in the manual DHCP table. So Network List is not updating, not even after a reboot.
 
This has been commented on for years. The Network Map is unreliable and frequently contains stale information. It's closed source so it's not something that RMerlin has any control over.
I can accept the Network Map issue as being known. However, the manual DHCP table still became corrupt for no apparent reason.

Just curious - how many devices for the DHCP reservations?
