Problem with Linksys auto-discovery picking up sensors



I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with Linksys routers and SNMP.

I'm having a problem with a few Linksys RVL200 routers. When I ask Network Monitor to do an auto-discovery, it's only picking up Ping, HTTP and DNS sensors, and not the interface sensors.

I also have some RVL200's that are working fine with the exact same SNMP settings configured. Is there a known problem with these devices, or is there something I can configure differently to allow PRTG to pick up the sensors I need.

Maybe I need to reboot the Linksys devices?

Have you tried the SNMPTester app to scan the device?

Yes, I tried it but over the WAN. I will try on a local PC at the site.

I scanned the device from a PC on the local LAN. This is the error:

error converting OID (SNMP error # 2007)
