    AP300 causes network problems

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Firmware version 1.0.0 Build 20160114 Release 34427
    Hardware version AP300 v1.0
    I'm an installer & have put in many, many devices for home networks.
    Recently I've started installing AP300 units as access points but found they cause problems so have to use other products.
    It seems the AP300 turn on their DHCP server again after setting this to "off".
    The TPLink website does not have any firmware updates for this product.
    Of course, having two DHCP servers on a LAN causes trouble.
    Can TPLink's engineers look into this please.

    Hi, i must say i have noticed some network issue too on my side.
    I've just unboxed the AP300 and configured it.
    I have disabled the DHCP server as i have one of my own, and assigned a static IP address to the AP300.
    Turns out that the AP300 is requesting my DHCP server every 30 seconds for a DHCP lease.
    Fun fact is that it gets the ACK, but still i can ping it only with the static address, the DHCP assigned address doesn't answer.
    Hopefully this will be fixed soon
