If you click on each device, does it give you an error that tells you why it's in the alerting state?
Regarding the IP addressing: are you talking about wireless clients? If your SSID is set to use NAT mode, this is expected functionality. You can check that by clicking "Settings" in the bottom right, scrolling down and expanding "Advanced settings," and selecting "Wireless address translation mode." If you select your SSID, it will show you if it is in NAT or Bridge mode. Before changing it to bridge mode, go back to the advanced settings, and make sure the DHCP server under "Local network addressing" is enabled. Also, (I believe) NAT mode is required on the SSIDs that you want to use Guest networking features.
