Hi, Here's where I am: Clean Router, structured wired new house. Frontier FIOS ISP. Home theatre room which connects directly (wall jack, not wireless) to Internet via PLAYBAR, (+SUB + Play1 + Play1) then daisy chained to tv for smart tv usage. Currently have a PLAY ONE in kitchen with hopes of others when the time comes around the house.
The issue: My Clean Router doesn't like to supply the TV with a good internet feed. Netflix gets to 25% and stalls.
So I plug the PLAYBAR and TV directly into the Frontier Modem/Router, bypassing the Clean Router. The Frontier Modem/Router has wireless disabled. So, the Netflix etc. then works like a charm, as does the surround sound via optical connection. The Problem then: The kitchen PLAY 1 is lost. My phone app can't find it, and I am out of luck. I need the Clean Router as a wireless provider in my home. But it appears that since the hard-wired device (Playbar) isn't on or using the same wifi signal, the kitchen PLAY 1 can't be seen. Is there a work-around? What am I missing? I have no problem investing in a Connect if that's the prevailing wisdom for a fix. Don't want to, but will.
Thank you all in advance!!
