PR2100 not automatically receiving IP address through DHCP

I have changed my ISP and therefore my router. When I boot my PR2100 it now does not automatically get assigned an IP address - I have to unplug the ethernet cable - re-plug it in and then the PR2100 will receive an IP address. I have no issues with any other devices plugged into the router - which is a Linksys MX5300.

I can reserve an IP address through DHCP reservations - in the router - and that seems to “fix” the issue. But ideally I’d like it to just work through plug and play. Is this potentially a timing issue - when booting the Pr2100 and when it requests an IP address? Has anyone else seen this behaviour?
