The Lenovo AIO DeskTop is plugged into  Asus Router RT66, and this Router is plugged into Asus RT-1200 done by an M1 technician.

 

When going to THIS PC ,  the network does not show my Marantz nor my LG Oled Tv as parts of my network.

 

But strangely neighbours iPhone showed up Lg Oled55 C9pta as in one of the pictures above.

 

Thanks

Bro I think this arrangement is one of the reasons for your issues with your wifi network.

I'm no pro so you'll need help from a pro on this, but essentially from what I know, it's not a good idea to have two routers in your system.

Eliminate one of them or use another as a bridge or AP.

Unless the wifi signal is bad, you should use one router and both models are good ones.

Then the LAN cable from the NA 11 should be plugged into the single router that you're using.

 

If you want to use both them, it's more complicated and if you are looking for simplicity, it's not a good idea:

Try installing Fing app on your Android phone.

 

Switch on your Marantz.

 

Use the apl to scan the network. See if you can identify the Marantz IP address.

 

After you get the Marantz IP address, configure it into your Marantz app.

 

 

Try to get someone who has some IT knowledge to help you…

 

 

Friends in my circle of same "vulnerable category" and as blur as sotong.

 

1-Where to go to find FL:ING app in my Android

 

2-If available, how to install will be next SOS

 

Will try later .

 

Thank you very much.

Thank you for your sincere and knowleadgeable advice.   

 

Originally, I had the RT 66 in my Family room for wider coverage as it faces 3 bedrooms.   (The Modem is at a corner of the Living room with 2

 

walls separating the distance.)   but reception in the Living room was poor and so when I contracted for M1 fibre RT-1200 can with it, So to have a

 

stonger signal in the Living  room I had the M1 technician did the connections.

 

I have read in Xtremeplace before many bros. bemoaning poor reception because of location and desppite many of them using one model after

 

another, reception did not improve out.

As a crude concept, connect a very long LAN cable from the back of the first router direct to the NA 11, see if it works. Bring the NA 11 close to it if needed.

If it does, then a bit of cabling will solve the issues.

I am still advocating Airplay.. and a Mac mini 😉

As far as I can see, your Marantz isn't connected to the same network as the mobile phone.

Friend kind enough to come over .

this 4th picture below appear below . It shows NO Connection on the Display.

 

My Marantz Dac is connected to Router by LAN cable.

 

 

 

 

Before I plug in the USB Thumbdrive I chose Music Server and this is what showed up.

@titactoh:

 

Just guessing here but it may be worth a try... I was thinking the same thing as Audio actually...

 

I suspect your iPhone is simply not connected via wifi to the same network that your Marantz NA11S1 is connected to. That's why you can't see the NA11S1 on the Marantz app on the iPhone.

 

1. Which router is the NA11S1 physically plugged into? Is it the RT-66 in your Family Room or the RT-1200 in the Living Room?

 

2. Do you know the Network Name for this router? If you're not sure, first turn off the router that the NA11S1 is not connected to.

 

3. (I'm not familiar with iPhones as I use Android but I will try...) On your iPhone, disconnect from its current wifi network. Then go to your wifi settings to choose the same network name that your NA11S1 is connected to.

 

4. Launch the Marantz app on your iPhone and try again. I hope it can detect the NA11S1 this time.

 

I will presume you already have your NA11S1 and the connected router powered up as you try all this, of course :).

 

Also, I think you should probably select USB on the Marantz app, not the Music Server.

 

HTH.

Do this

You have not answer if the iPhone, NA 11 and PC are all on the same network bro..

Will do later as once I turn off RT-66,   this Desktop will also be off.

How do I know the Network Name that my NAs11 is connected to  ?

Thank you.

So your PC and your NA 11 are on Different networks as suspected 

Connect your NA 11 with a LAN cable to the RT 1200. Turn OFF the RT 66. Get a LAN cable from the RT 1200 to your PC.

Use the iPhone to join whatever network the RT 1200 is on.

You can try the following too if it's not convenient to turn off the RT-66 in the Family Room at the moment:

 

1. On your iPhone, look for the name of the wifi network that it's currently connected to. This may possibly look something like "M1-A123" etc. This is the network name of the RT-66. Note down this name.

 

2. On your iPhone, disconnect from this wifi network.

 

3. Bring your iPhone physically close to the RT-1200 in your Living Room. On your iPhone, look for the wifi network that shows the strongest signal, that is not the same as the network name in Step 1 above.

 

4. Connect to this network. This should be the network name for the RT-1200 in your Living Room.

 

5. Close and open the Marantz app. See if the app detects the NA11S1.

 

6. If it does, select the USB option and see if it reads the files in your thumbdrive.
