Description Of Issue

Everything has been pretty stable and then Saturday I no longer see the Node or LINN dacs.
I have rebooted everything several times. I’m stumped. And missing my music. Remeber my desktop KEF LSX system is working along with Roon software.

Thanks for your assistance.

Power off everything including Roon Core and devices. Power cycle your router and network switches. Wait for a few minutes then power on everything.

Ok. I turned off and then rebooted in this order:

Comcast switch
Pakedge router
Dell PC
Linn & Node 2i

No improvement.

Appreciate your assistance.

Hi @Chip_Perry,

What kind of operating system do you have on the NUC, did you install ROCK on it?

Is the behavior the same from another Roon Remote/Client as well?

Did you by any chance make any changes to your network setup on Saturday? Are the device still visible in your router DHCP listing?

Ah, would you believe a bad switch? I think that was the problem. Anyway all systems back to normal and ROON running great as always.

Thanks for the quick assistance.

I do. Switches fail more often than many people realize. We even had two of our corporate grade $$$ switches failed.

It appears it was a malfunctioning switch.

At any rate, everything is in fine working order.

Hi @Chip_Perry,

Thanks for the update. Switches do experience hardware issues so if this behavior occurs again you may want to take an even closer look at the switch to ensure it is working properly and/or replace it, thanks!
