Can’t login when trying to install the Roon Core, etc. on my desktop PC, which will be the server. I also can’t login online from that same computer, but I CAN login from my laptop on WiFi on the same network (where I’m typing now). I’ve
power-cycled the Fios modem and the Netgear router twice, and rebooted the PC itself twice
changed the DNS to Cloudflare 220.127.116.11. (primary) and 18.104.22.168. (secondary) as per some other suggestions for this problem in the Community
tried turning off Windows Defender’s firewall and virus protection separately and together, to no avail; no other antivirus or antimalware on the machine
Hi @Tim_McCoy1, and welcome to the Roon forum. Sorry you’ve had to post for support so early. I’m not support, but I’ll try to help while you’re waiting for them. First question, do you get a reason why you can’t login by either method?
When I’m in the app itself, I get the error referenced in the title to the OP: “Network error. Please check your internet connection.” If I’m in Chrome or Edge, I get “There was an error retrieving your account information. Please check your connection and try again.”
Presumably you can browse the Internet on the windows pc? Do make sure you refresh the page, F5, to make sure it’s not cached. The obvious answer is there’s an issue with the wired Ethernet. CAT 9 cables aren’t a thing BTW, but I’d recommend a good old fashioned CAT5 cable with your router.

Do you run any addblocker software or something or did you manipulate your hosts file manually for some reason? I’m pretty sure that a DNS lookup for updates.roonlabs.com shouldn’t resolve to 127.0.0.1. Maybe other similar redirects occur for roonlabs.com (hosted most likely by Google Cloud services; your machine is possibly blocking some Google domains). This is also the likely reason why you also can’t login from the browser on that machine.
I’d already tried this (third bullet point in the original post) but just tried again (i.e., I turned off Virus and Threat Protection and the 3 firewall options in Defender: public, private, and domain) and still couldn’t login into the app or to my online account.
