Description of Issue
- My roon server is on my iMac that is connected by wire to my network through a thunderbolt dock.
- Whenever I disconnect the thunderbolt dock (because I need to connect my laptop) the roon bridge goes into ‘unavailable’ mode. I understand the network interface becomes unavailable.
- Roon bridge is not only bound to the wired interface, but also the wireless interface.
- If that is not true, how can I prioritise the wifi interface over ethernet? Do you use the priority set in the network interface of MacOS?
If you select ‘Set Service Order’ you’ll be able to drag Wi-Fi to the top of the list. This will (hopefully) solve your immediate problem but may cause other issues (Roon works best when hard wired).
yeah I figured that much - I might just use the iMacs’ hard wired connection instead of my TB docks’, thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks for choosing to reach out and share what you’re trying to find a solution to. We’d love to help as well.
Did @DaveN’s suggestion make a change? Thanks @DaveN
Hi @beka! Yes I’ve solved it by setting the primary network connection to be a different one, that worked!
