That will be the broken bridging between wifi and wireless in the white netcomms that has been a thing for a long time and they are not doing anything about. disable the inbuilt wireless of the netcomm and use seperate AP's everywhere and you will not have the problem anymore.

it wasnt just the orcon ones that had the issues a few other of their models had the issue too and they pretty much dismissed it.

 

on my NF8AC they released a new firmware for it but i never tested it to see if they fixed it as i got 2 access points so just disabled the wifi

Yeah but orcon ones meant you couldnt update it with the "fixed" one. I just retired my netcomms and will never buy the brand again based on their crap handling of that. Imagine if it was a security problem and they just messed about emailing back people that they couldnt reproduce it etc.
