I have Rock installed on NUC, it works fine.
This week, I installed an AiMesh node the network itself works fine.
But at this moment, the NUC is connected via Ethernet, in my music room, very often my Android cell phone with Roon controller might switch to the new AiMesh node by itself. I noticed if my phone connects to the router, then I am able to find the Roon core. However when my phone connects to the AiMesh node, then I am not able to connect to the Roon core.
Maybe worth to mention, no matter if my phone connects to the router or the AiMesh node, the Youtube app on my phone is able to find my Samsung TV, and Google Nest to cast Youtube video.
so I wonder why Roon controller cannot find the Roon core.
I did a bit of search and I couldn’t find a solution. Any help is appreciated.
@noris yes, the AIMesh node was different router than my primary router.
but yesterday I refunded that AiMesh node and bought the Asus Ax6100 (RT-AX92U) bundle (came with two identical tri-bands wif6 routers), I just set them up again and will test it more today.
in my home I have 3 routers now. two Ax6100 (the primary router, and the node that close to the music room), and another GT-AC5300 router in living room.
any yes they use the same subnet because their IPs are 192.168.50.X
@noris I keep trying and here is the strange behaviour for the roon controller on Android.
Whenever the roon controller on Android lost connection to the core, then I use my PC desktop to open Roon client on PC, the PC client (connected via ethernet) is still able to see the Roon core.
However when roon controller on Android lost connection, I am still able to use browser to visit “http://rock”
If I restart roon server software via “http://rock”, then immediately my android controller is able to connect to Roon core, in this case, the wifi of my Android phone doesn’t change at all, but just restart roon server software.
So couple questions:
a) why Andoird client cannot connect but PC client can?
b) why restart roon server software via web UI can solve the issue for Android client temporary. (after Android phone goes to sleep mode without using it, it might lose connection to Roon core again and have same problem, so then I need to restart roon server software again).
@noris Thanks for the reply. I did above restart steps at around 3:24pm and 3:49pm of Dec 23, in the log, you might see many more other Roon core restart events during the day, that basically because the situation repeats again and again.
Thanks for letting me know that timestamp! I can confirm that a set of logs has reached out servers, and it does look like the Android device tries to re-connect quite a few times in a short period of time:
