Control:PC has recently started to fail oddly on one of my computers.

The computer is a Windows 7 HP laptop running BT Virus Protect connected to the network (BT Home Hub 4) via a dumb switch and ethernet over power adaptors.

Control:PC will suddenly clear and start the wheel of eternal failure, eventually saying it cannot connect to the core. Control:Web does the same on the same computer via Internet Explorer 11 and Google Chrome.

Another PC running a similar setup and connected via the same dumb switch works fine.

The 818v3 is also connected to the dumb switch and continues to work when the failure happens.

The DNS cache was cleared (as that seemed an obvious problem source) but to no avail.

I can clear the problem for a few days by rebooting the computer.

The problem is presumably a specific setting or piece of software on the offending laptop since everything else (switch, network, etc.) is the same.

Any thoughts?

I lost Control:PC some time ago. I run Sooloos and Roon side by side on my network and I assumed it was because of the Roon Core. Control:Web works but Sooloos Configure does not.

None of this mattered to me until I realized I only have CD's backed up in Sooloos format and am unable to reconvert. I have turned off Roon but that doesn't help.

Roon only finds my MS600's if I turn off Sooloos, reboot router and switch. I normally use an Explorer2 for Roon because MS600's are sometimes dropped and need to reboot router and switch continually.
