Not sure how to tell for each connection. However the Switch shows them on 255.255.255.0 & the router also shows this for the LAN information. Is there a way to check beyond the Switch and router management page?
In your TP-Link router management page, do you see all the devices that should be on your network for Roon (your Roon Core, endpoints, the backup PC), and do they all have similar IP addresses (examples would be 192.168.aaa.bbb where the aaa is the same the bbb is different on each device)?
@Ed_Houston, can you provide a bit more information on what you mean by this? Do you mean that you have a Roon Remote running on the W11 backup PC that can see other Roon Remotes (phones and laptops) but not the Nucleus?
This is a bit beyond what I can do for assistance as this seems to be a network and/or application configuration question regarding your specific system Have you tried connecting your W11 PC via SMB to the Nucleus for database backup and file transfers?
But you can! I solved this by creating a “mapped drive”. In File Explorer go to ‘Network’, right-click it and from the fold-out menu choose “Make a network connection” (or something similar; I’m on a Dutch windows version). In the pop-up choose a vacant drive letter (I use N: for Nucleus) and in the folder field type \Nucleus\Data\Storage*name of your storage device*. From now on you can transfer music files to your N: drive.
