Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AC1900

Post by prunsen » Thu Jan 12, 2017 3:20 am

Hi

I have some problems connecting a Node2 to my wireless network, using the Nighthawk Router.
The connection is a 50/50 fiber, and so far we had no problems with any brand, Sonos,PS4,Samsung TV's,ipads etc
If I try to connect the Node2 direct to Nighthawk by cable it is visible in desktop-controller right away and can be used.
When I try to connect to wireless it does register my home network when it comes to the website "setup.bluesound.com"

Does anyone know if there is some kind of ports in the router that needs to be modified to accept Bluesound ??

Also on Netgear, R8000. :) No settings need to be done.

Same xxxx here, Marantz receivers and preamp won't see the Node 2i. Since I game I am moving on to the RX500, great reputation and been out for a year now.

Take above back, searching for R7000 Amazon RX 500 and 700 reviews brings up a number of unhappy upgraders, teh R7000 is a great router, just can't have my Bluesound Node 2i be seen by Marantz receivers.

Another point for OP, make sure you unplug the ethernet cable and reset the Node 2i, no VPN on phone, and 2.4GHz WiFi, won't talk to devices on the 5GHz network.
