Description of Issue

My Roon Core is constantly disconnecting from my audio device. I get the error message “No audio device found” after ~10 minutes of play. This occurs most times I stream through Roon (including in the hour or so prior to this post). Occasionally I can play an extended session via Roon streaming (2-4 hours) with no dropouts. Dropouts occur even when there is no other network traffic. After a Dropout occurs, I can restart Roon on the Core Machine and stream playback for another ~10mins before another dropout occurs … and so on it goes.

Speed tests on my network are as follows.
From Roon Core Machine: 36.56Mbps download / 4.36Mbps download.
From iPad (8th Gen.) located next to the Auralic Aries G2.1: 36.52Mbps / 4.18Mbps.

This…
Can you connect via a wired connection as Roon can struggle with wifi unless its really done right, speed is definitely not the be all and end all of wifi for Roon to work flawlessly.

I could try a temporary wired connection to see if that makes any difference, however, it’s not really feasible to do this as a permanent fix given the location of my incoming phone line/modem and listening room.

I understand and thats a common situation.
However it will tell us/yourself if that is all that is the problem and then if wifi is a must the community can assist in suggestion on how to best Roonify it!

OK, thanks AceRimmer. I’ll try a temporary wired connection and report back.
