I am also having problems maintaining connection now for some reason, I've had it playing for the last 2 hours, but now he connection to Roon keeps dropping.

Even setting the 218 as a static IP has made no difference.

After rebooting everything for a cables organising session it is all working for now.
I'll see what happens.

The problem mentioned here isn't a Roon connection problem. It's purely between the IP Control App and the 218. I think only a small number of people that have had it.

My IP Control app is also losing connection with the 218.

218 has fixed IP via DHCP from my Vigor router.

WiFi is Apple AirPort Extreme wired to the same network switch as the 218.

I am finding that music plays but there are frequent brief "dropouts" which system recovers from almost immediately.

Is this similar to your problems?

No, the only issue I am aware of is the iPad app losing connection. It doesn't affect what's playing via the network at the time. Yours sounds like a different problem.

Is this through a network app i.e. Roon or Sooloos. I used a dodgy network cable with mine initially and I had a couple of dropouts before swapping. (This could apply to a SpeakerLink out connections too.)

Cheers

I was having Roon issues after moving a lot of things and cables around when I installed the 218. I changed out a few cables without success. Rather embarrassingly, after a long time, I managed to work out that I had initially reinserted the laptop network cable upside down AND then managed to insert the replacement upside down. Therefore, the Roon Core laptop was having to connect wirelessly to the NAS in another room where the music folders are blush

Were you using a hammer? I'm not sure I've ever been able to insert a network cable the wrong way round.

Thanks Tom,

It's getting to the point where I'll try anything including magic potions.

I'll replace the leads in while and report back!

That's what I thought. It wouldn't go in the right way round, so I thought I was being stupid and wrongly remembering which way up it should go. Same with the replacement.

I had real fight to get it in correctly. I only persisted cos the Ethernet port was showing unconnected. Thought I was going to break the thing.
