TP Link Archer main router extended via TP Link Re450 via LAN cable, No VPN
Have used this setup right from the beginning without any issue. This problem has started only recently. Also, my other internet activities connected from same access point has faced so issues. I don’t think this is a network issue. Please let me know how can I share my roon logs so you can help me understand.
Connected Audio Devices

Use Roon Server only, Roon Remote on Phone to switch tracks etc.

Description of Issue
Roon Server drop issues are very frequent. Restarting didn’t solve the issue. Internet works fine over Netflix and other such services without any drops.
I can share my log files but unable to attach in this message.
It’s not on wifi. I have been using the configuration as mentioned above ie main router to extender over wifi and extender to roon server via lan cable since years. I haven’t had trouble before. This issue only cropped up recently.
How can my problem be irrelevant? A problem is a problem innit?
I am not replying rudely. I raised this request on support forum seeking help from roon support. This isn’t a topic for discussion and the comment posted offered no help nor any solution. Infact it labelled my problem as irrelevant.
The forum realistically doubles as support and community help. There are many users with 7-8 yrs experience of Roon. The majority of issues have raised their head many times and without an encyclopaedic knowledge of the forum an individual cannot hope to search out an answer hence the community.
The support staff are few in number and in most occasions the solution is found and applied long before support get involved.
If the issue is complex then it will find its way to support when logs can be checked etc.
2 golden rules
Don’t avoid rebooting the system including the modem ‘ router
If you can (obviously you can’t) avoid wi fi
Running an Ethernet cable I suspect in you case will cure your woes.
Thanks i completely understand. I have never been rude on this forum. It was more of frustration. I clarified this with xxx who’s intention was to help. I am not a native speaker hence might have misunderstood the intention.
I am using an Ethernet cable to connect my nuc with the extender. So my setup is semi wifi i guess.
Also, i haven’t been rebooting the routers. Will keep this in mind. Thanks.
I also use an Archer D9 with RE 450 extender(s) , I have one in my lounge and another in the kitchen . Originally I ran exactly as you do wi fi to the extender then Ethernet to the streamer.
It worked but only reliably for 44.1.
Eventually I bit the bullet and ran a cable . This was messy for me as my house is brick and concrete with a flat roof. So it’s out of one wall across the roof and back through another wall. Add to that the UV protection as I live in South Africa. It was not a trivial undertaking
That said I would do it all over again for the stability it gave me
Just a word about Wi-Fi: I only use one Wi-Fi-capable device as a Roon endpoint, a Sonos speaker in my daughter’s room. There were always dropouts, sometimes more sometimes less. A week ago I connected the speaker to the network via cable, and since then I haven’t had a single dropout. And that’s despite the fact that I have excellent Wi-Fi - nothing beats the wired connection.
