I had all the problems in this forum (in bridge mode, some devices got IPs, some did not). My DHCP server was my HUAWEI modem/router.
I disabled DHCP on the HUAWEI and installed a DHCP server on a W2008 server that I have on all the time.
Surprise: Now it is working like a dream in bridge mode and ALL devices get IP adresses.

I have the same problem. In bridge mode my devices are failing to obtain IP addresses. I'm guessing everyone that has run into this hasn't had it resolved yet? Arggh my return window is shrinking for me.

I have the opportunity of using the beta as well, but it did improve my experience in bridge mode.
I didn't have a clear understanding of what was going on with the current firmware, so I am not sure if they same is true. Based on my experience above, are you able to remove the IP assignments on the DHCP before connecting to the Velop?

Guys - this may not be entirely appropriate to post on the Velop forum, but since Linksys has been working this for months now - with no solution, I think it's fair.
About 2 months ago a bought the Velop system with the intention of having seamless wifi across a rambling house. I have a great router and just wanted the velop as a bridge.
Bought it from Amazon and tried it for 3 weeks including contact with Linksys support. Exactly the same issues that you are all having.
I gave up and finally returned it before the Amazon 30 day return window closed.
Purchased a Ubiquiti UniFi system with 4 nodes and have had precisely zero problems with it since day 1.
It's at least 25% cheaper than the Velop (same number of nodes), far more powerful, provides seamless handoff from node to node - even with streaming content, and is designed SPECIFICALLY to work with a separate DHCP server.
Best of all, it allows the administrator total access to every aspect of every node to understand exactly how the nodes are working - unlike the Velop which is very opaque as to what is exactly happening.
You do need to be a little more "techie" to get the UniFi all running, but once it's done, it is truly incredible.
I know this doesn't help those that already own the Velop and are having to live with it, but know that there is a solution out there that does exactly what you want.

Change to route mode and wait for a fix. I tested for 2 days the latest beta and bridge mode was not working.
The Linksys Engineers can even admit that is not working. They should be able to tell that in the new version xyz the bridge mode problems are fixed. They should be able to provide a full list of reported problems. I am not happy. but I have invested the money and can only hope this product will be developed in the next 1-2 years.
I have ASUS at home as router. If I compare the features (L3, Securtity) with Velop than Velops looks like a good product for my parents (around 80). Easy to configure because you can only change around 5 settings :-)
