  • Embrace the Power of Bridge Mode
  • When using a third-party router or mesh system like Google or eero, maximize your network efficiency by placing your ISP router in "Bridge Mode." This eliminates any potential conflicts and ensures smooth streaming.

  • Harness the Strength of Separation
  • To optimize your network's performance, separate the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands and assign them unique SSID's. This segregation guarantees a dedicated and uninterrupted music streaming experience.

  • Embrace Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
  • Activate the UPnP feature on your router to effortlessly connect and communicate with compatible devices. Enjoy hassle-free music streaming without the need for manual configurations.

  • Access Points Made Easy
  • If you're using access points, ensure smooth device connectivity and seamless playback by disabling "AP Isolation" or "Client Isolation." This ensures all your devices work harmoniously together.

  • Embrace the Magic of Multicasting
  • Enable multicast functionality on your router, taking into account the unique terminologies used by different router companies. This ensures efficient data transfer and improves overall performance.

  • Apple Users Rejoice
  • For Apple device users, enable "Bonjour" or "ZeroConf Discovery" to effortlessly discover and connect to compatible devices within your network. Unlock a world of Apple ecosystem integration.

  • Streamlined IPv4 Experience
  • To streamline your music streaming experience, disable IPv6 and rely solely on IPv4 for improved compatibility and stability.

  • Embrace the Power of IGMP
  • Activate the "IGMP" (Internet Group Management Protocol) feature on your router to enhance multicast data transmission and optimize your music streaming experience.

    Remember, for a seamless experience across your entire network, ensure that managed switches and access point controllers follow the same network suggestions as detailed above.
