SNMP causing IP problem

A SNMP sensor was created on a Nanostation2 in bridge mode with a fixed IP. After a few minutes the IP on the WAN router changed to the IP of the router connected downstream of the Nanostation2 but still showed the MAC address of the Nano. The fixed IP of the Nano was ignored. All connectivity was lost. Removing the sensor corrected the problem. The IP address went back to the correct one. What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

PRTG only sends out read-SNMP Requests. No write-SNMP requests. So PRTG does not change the configuration of any target monitored with SNMP. If the 'nanostation' though changes its settings (IP) because of a few SNMP Requests, that just try reading information, please consult with the vendor then, that's not a very stable behavior to be honest.

best regards.
