Own address as source address??

Post by DILLYP » Sat Jan 23, 2021 10:43 am

I'm receiving these log entries randomly throughout every day between 07:30 and 21:00. Never overnight
From previous posts elsewhere, they don't cause a real problem.
Has anyone identified what the cause is and how to cure the problem.
I have the 2900AX -2400 and three wireless AP's hardwired to it, all with the same SSID and password but on different channels.

I've only seen these logs when running a wireless AP on the network, there are just warning messages and should not effect the performance so nothing to worry about

I’m getting these too on my 8900AX-1600R2. I do have a secondary AP using the same SSID.
They can happen several times a second and cause log suppression to kick in.
