The fallback address of 169.254.200.20 no longer responds on v2.8.1 for the C5x. Logging into the admin page, I see it has a random address, example:
IPv4 LLA: 169.254.58.14
Generating a random address completely defeats the purpose of having a static fallback IP that you can connect to. When the C5x connects to the AP, it gets a random IP that I don’t know. The fallback was the only way to connect to the radio while installing a new device, prior to knowing its actual address.
The release notes don’t mention this change, and still reference the original .20 IP. Is this a bug, or is there some other way to connect to the radio in a static way?
