Switched from Bell Canada 3000 router to Bell Giga Hub router and Roon Arc stopped seeing core

After switching from Bell Canada 3000 router to Bell Giga Hub router, Roon Arc no longer sees Roon core. Checked Bell Giga Hub router settings and UPnP is on and Roon Arc settings port has not changed and remains set at 55000.

Roon Arc unable to see Roon Core now.

Please advise.

Description of Issue: After switching from Bell Canada 3000 router to Bell Giga Fibre router, Roon Arc no longer sees core. Bell Giga Fibre modem settings has UPnP on and Roon Arc settings port has not changed and remains set at 55000

Screenshots of Roon Arc, Roon Settings/Roon Arc and Router settings for UPnP and Port forwarding:

Have you tried adding a manual 55000 port forward rule to your Roon Core’s IP address?

Haven’t I already done that? (See Roon Settings/Roon Arc screenshot in previous post.)

No, ARC is listening on port 55000, but there’s no UPnP port forwarding rule in place in your router. I think you’ll need to manually set a rule to forward port 55000 traffic to your core’s IP address.

In your Gigahub rules create a new rule, call it Roon ARC or something, internal 55000, external 55000, then set the IP to your core’s IP -

Hopefully that should work.

Yes, that did it. See screenshots for Roon Settings/Roon Arc confirmation and Bell Giga Hub router settings.

Thank you.

(Hope someone can update router list with that rule for the Bell Canada Giga Hub router.)
