It is a flaw in M2P, and something they should address in the next update.
I did not see the problem because my base release is older started with 2.16?
It didn’t have the dhcpd check that the newer versions have.
I found the problem by loading the new release and trying to get my dongle to work.
You’re very very welcome, my reward is your reaction when it worked ROFL
It’s been a long haul but it ended in success.
