2.52.d12 seems to have cleared the double login problem on my 8800NL R2.

Still running the test firmware prior to 2.52.d11 but not rushed to update at the moment. Not noticed the login issue but I don't really log into the router often to have experienced it.
Uptime with the test firmware now over 16 days 7 hours.

Just upgraded my 8800AXL R2 to 2.52.d12. So far, so good...well almost.

I now see my Sky WiFi connector show in ARP table as Incomplete? And it's host name and IP address don't show in the DHCP listing. However, the Sky box is accessing the internet as before.

Might be worth trying to reboot the Sky box, but if it is working fine, you might want to just leave it as is

See attached screenshots. As I say, the Sky box is working. It's just not displaying as expected In the DHCP list. And it sometimes shows as complete and sometimes as incomplete.

When it shows as incomplete it means the device had a connectivity issue and normally not contactable or had a IP change.
Devices shown on the ARP but not on the DHCP means the router hasn't issued a new IP to it via the DHCP server, (normally static IP devices are listed within the ARP) so what I think has happened is the Sky box has held its previous IP address, and has not requested a new IP address from the router.
