Describe the issue

I can not connect with my Roon Nucleus, this has happened many times over the years, I go through all the steps to fix it and usually have to send the unit in. Any other help.

Describe your network setup

spectrum modem, linksys mesh router. Have had this set up for several years, no changes.

I see from your previous posts that you have a persistent issue where your Nucleus displays a “Searching for a network address…” on a monitor or TV attached to it - and this message is seen whether you use the ethernet port of the Nucleus itself or using a USB to ethernet dongle.

That would seem to suggest to me that this is actually a network issue, rather than the fault lying in the Nucleus itself. Let’s see what @support have to say…

Hey @Mark_Tucker,

Sorry to hear you’re running into more issues with your Nucleus! If possible, could you share a screenshot of your Nucleus hooked up via HDMI?

Are you able to access the webUI of the Nucleus?

I’ll be on standby for your reply

I can’t access webUI, I really don’t think I can get it up and running. I am willing to pay a bench fee to have it looked at.



Hey @Mark_Tucker,

Understood! Thanks for giving that a try.

Is this still the case? A fresh screenshot of what you see via a monitor or TV will help our team better understand if it’s a hardware-based issue, and if so, get it sent in for proper investigation from the team.

Let me know! :+1:

This is the picture of monitor/TV screen using the ethernet port of the nucleus and the same picture using the USB to ethernet dongle.

Got it, thanks for the update @Mark_Tucker, sounds like you’ll need to send it in for inspection. You can start the RMA process using the form below:
