What Conditions Might Cause Fingbox to Continually Ask about Trusted Gateway?
I am also having trouble with a Linksys LGS318 smartswitch connected to this router. I am not yet sure about the frequency but the switch losses its IP address periodically and then cannot renew. Sometimes the reset button works, sometime I have to power cycle.
I realize that none of these problems may be due to the Fingbox - I am curious what may cause it to behave this way.
That's what Cox and Xfinity does when you use their hardware, Spectrum also has Hotspots so that's my guess.
It would be on a segregated network and device detection shouldn't happen but I've read people detecting devices connected to Xfinity Hotspots being broadcasted from their gateway.0
If these connections are on a segregated network how then how are people discovering this? I have Wireshark installed on a couple of machines but am not skilled in its use.Spectrum periodically makes available some kind of “profile” that seems to be a list of public connections. I forget exactly what it’s called, where it is stored on my iDevices, and how I receive it but at least some of the locations appear to be private residences. This sounds like what you are talking about.
Assuming Spectrum has made my connection a hot spot, how would this cause what is marketed as a “business” managed switch to lose its IP address?
I appreciate your input.
Edited: That profile thing is in General iOS settings. General > Profile > Spectrum WiFi > Configuration Profile0

. . . Is the switch on a VLAN or just being used for additional wired connections? Could you describe your network topology?
No VLANs - ISP does support and so not sure of the worth of trying to use under that circumstance.
My topology is a bit of a mess. In brief, I have two separate LANs, each with its own ISP (neither supports VLAN). The majority of devices on each LAN are multi-homed with none of the NICs bridged. Each LAN is a combination of managed and unmanaged switches, and bridged routers than serve as access points and host USB hard drives. Closest to each functional router is a LGS318 managed switch (one of which loses its IP address). Each of these LGS318s uplinks to my NAS and to the functioning routers. One computer and one Fingbox is also connected with these routers. Hopefully this makes sense without a diagram.
It makes sense in that your network is complex with many possible places to cause such an issue to arise, thanks. Could you try switching the LGS318 to a different location and see if it still loses the IP or if the LGS318 you move to this location begins losing the IP? It will help rule out a hardware fault.0
As it happens, I just received a new LGS318 a few days ago to use at a location where I ran out of ports on the switch there. I was planning to try what you suggest but time is tight right now. Still need to buy, address, and mail some Christmas cards and do a few more related things but promised a client a much-anticipated report (that will be a big letdown for some of their staff). Will post if and when I get the chance to swap it out.
BTW, I'm pretty sure that switch's DHCP lease has expired, and apparently been renewed, as it is chugging along.
