Flic hub LR doesn’t connect to internet or Hue hub

My flic LR hubs do not connect to the internet, not over wifi or over ethernet.
When I connect it to my network I get a weird ip-address. 169.254.x.x, a internet search told me it’s is a APIPA adres. You get when a HDCP server isn’t found.
I also have a hub mini which works fine. What can I do?
I contacted customer support but they don’t respond to my mails.
Can anybody help me please? I have dozens of buttons that aren’t working! My family is angry. Things like this kill a smart home setup.
@jasperruijsink When you connect a cable, you get an automatically assigned link local IP address, starting with 169.254. The DHCP server, typically running on a router, is then going to assign an available IP address to the hub. If it has no available IP address (i.e. it has run out of addresses) or otherwise doesn't give the hub one, the hub will stuck with its link local IP address.
The Hub LR runs https://github.com/NetworkConfiguration/dhcpcd, which is one of the most commonly used DHCP clients and should work with most routers or DHCP servers.
If nothing works, I suggest you to try another router, or factory reset the router and/or the Flic Hub.
