Reply to "Using Asset UPnP"

Asset is now listing my library, but the Naim app doesn't find it.  It found it briefly, then when I clicked on 'albums' it hung and when I went back it had gone.  I'm guessing there's something I need to do with my network.

I run a Virgin Media Super Hub as a modem, with an Asus RT-AC68U as the router.

The Atom is working wirelessly, but the PC is hooked up through a homeplug.  I know that Uniti's have issues with homeplugs, which is why I'm using the Atom wirelessly.  But does the problem also cause issues with servers?

Thanks

Homeplugs are consumer home network kludge work arounds and not ideal, you are better off with Ethernet connectivity .. homeplugs are essentially half duplex bridges and as such the timing of data can be affected and they can interfere with multicast discovery etc. not to mention the horrendous amount of RFI they introduce on the mains and the potentially unreliable data transfer they provide (in terms of being susceptible to other interference on your mains). Best  use  WLAN or Ethernet for connectivity and remove the variables...
