Since a few days I cant communicate with my ID40 card.

I have a MacBook with an external USB drive and a iPad as a remote control, running Roon and Tidal.

The network consist of a modem/router in the cellar, from where a single line go to the audio network.

In the listening room is also a second router just for audio.The Mac and the ID40 card is connected there, the iPad get wireless to that "audio" router.

I guess - don't know it for sure - that after a thunderstorm the "audio" router has no wireless access anymore (only via the cable) and also there is no communication with the ID40 card.

I have tried to switch on/off and reset even the ID40 card, but no success.

With a IP-finder running on my Mac or on the iPad there was also no communication.

Type the last known IP address from the ID40 card and try to get then access via the web browser is also no success.

How else can I prove if the ID40 is dead, or what can I do...?

Thanks Robert

I know from your many other posts that you are very capable of eliminating, by substitution or removal, the various network components that may be causing trouble..
Clearly, you must painstakingly and with step by step logic do that.

However, there is something else I would recommend.

My ID40 stopped operating properly the instant it was expected to receive and play audio. This turned out to be because another card in my 861 was faulty and was disturbing the power supply lines.

To check, try the 861 with the absolute minimum of cards and see whether the ID40 is all right in that configuration. Then, if it is, replace cards one by one until it stops working properly. More painstaking work required but worth trying if all else hasn't revealed anything.

To add to this I ran into a problem recently with an ID40 where it would show up on the network after rebooting the 861. As soon as the ID40 was the selected zone to play from a C15, it would drop off the network. Turned out that tbe ID40 was not assigned correctly to a MSR source key. Worth looking into.

remember there is a maintenance USB connection on the back of the ID40. You can connect a cable and gain serial access to the ID40. I will PM you the details.
