  • Ethernet to Oppo udp 203 - HDMI to Denon outputing sound through a pair of Qacoustics.
  • Computer to USB audio to Project s2 digital, headphone socket Sennheiser cans

Description Of Issue

The devices connected through wifi (Phone, Tablet, TV) do not see the devices connected through ethernet (PC, Shield, Oppo…). when i try to use roon through my phone (LG V30) it cannot find the core, but once i switch the pc from ethernet to WIFI, the device can see the core again.
I checked my antivirus firewall, and it also sees 2 networks, (ESET Smart security antivirus), Wired shows the list of devices connected from the switch, Wirless shows the devices connected through Wifi only.

I tried to feed the Linksys from the switch, (Wall to switch, Switch to Linksys+ all other devices), but still 2 networks are visible.

The only last option i haven’t, is to feed the Switch from the Router, sadly the second Ethernet port on Linksys is not working, i cannot do it (the router has 2 ports only).

Thanks in Advance

Please make sure your Linksys router is configured as Access Point. See also:

Hi @Sky-Watsher,

As BlackJack suggested, make sure that the Linksys router is set up as an access point. For Roon to work properly, all devices must be on the same subnet, and likely what is happening here is that these devices are on different subnets.

Thanks @dylan & @BlackJack re-configured the wifi router as bridge mode and it’s all flawless now.
