Roon ARC works perfectly on my setup: Windows 11 Roon Core and FritzBox 7590 router.
Please be aware that in many routers you need to:
1 - turn on UPnP
2 - give permission to use UPnP to automatically configure ports to your Roon core.
Hi Penny. I accidentally replied with a whisper. Did you see my reply with the screenshots? I am going to provide them here too just in case. This will also allow other users to see the screens.
Fellow ASUS user here. I’m a fan of their very detailed and sometimes confusing config.
Can you check the configuration in the screenshots I supplied? I don’t know if it was one setting or some combination of the 3 but trying to get ARC working on my ASUS I ended up enabling all of these things. Please note that for the second screen shot, the internal IP is not necessary. Screenshots below:
There is a possibility that your IPV6 is enabled and causing some issues. Can you try disabling IPV6 on your ASUS and try again?
Under Settings>Roon Arc, is the port manually configured to 55000? Go ahead and set it if not. It’s possible that it’s blocked by your ISP. You can verify this by going to https://canyouseeme.org/ and providing 55000 in the Port to check field.
Would you mind sharing your ISP and your modem make/model so we can check some other possibilities?
It sounds like your ISP is blocking the port then. I looked and it seems the Experia box has a UI that should allow you to open the port. I found this website and the steps look good but I don’t have your modem and can’t verify.
Alternatively, let your ISP know that you are trying to port forward. They may have something they can do on their side. At the very least, give you exact steps to open the port. If the canyouseeme site cannot find you on the port, Roon ARC won’t be able to either.
