Description of Issue

When playing through my main system via my Bluesound Node 2i, it starts fine but when I add tracks to the queue it clips, buffers and will only play in fits and starts.

I have to reboot my Bluesound node 2i and restart Roon to fix. I have had this issue since almost the year that I have had Roon. I may not renew over the issue.

What is the model/manufacturer of your router?

Can you share more about how your endpoints and Core are connected to the network? Does this happen if you bypass the Netgear switches and connect the devices directly to the router?

Are you able to try switching out the Ethernet cable, as well, to test and see if it’s the cabling interfering.

I’d also recommend reading the Networking Best Practices guide
