  1. So I got the doohickey linked at the bottom today and just set it up Seems to work great and has a wide 'spread' meaning I don't even have to point the Siri remote directly at it for it to receive the signal And, as an added benefit, my Denon had a USB port up front so I just plugged the doohickey into that for power All in all, I'm pleased with this solution Thanks for the help https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LC7HVHW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. Hi My Denon receiver is sitting in a rack in a closet in which we keep the door open all the time I want to get volume control of the receiver using my new Siri remote that Apple had just released Currently, the only way to do that without setting up CEC control (which I don't want to do for various reasons) is via line of sight into the closet Since we keep the closet door open all the time, we can get line of sight, but only if we direct the Siri remote towards the closet and low down in the rack where the receiver sits In order to do this, one would have to sit in a certain location on the couch when watching Apple TV - if one sits in a different portion of the couch, he would be unable to obtain line of sight to the receiver There's an IR blaster attached to the receiver currently, I'm guessing for Control4 remote control of the receiver My question is how do I get IR control from the Siri remote to the receiver without having to do what I mentioned above Is this a good use of case scenario for something like an IR repeater? Do I just keep the transmitter portion out in the open in the room and the receiver portion in the rack, directed towards the receiver? Thanks in advance
  3. Went ahead and factory reset the Connect, deleted S1, re-downloaded S1, created a new S1 system, added back all my music services and favorites and changed all my settings back to what I had before Had to go into Composer HE and redo the bindings for my 6 button keypad (each button starts a different Apple Music station) b/c, technically, all my Sonos favorites were "new" But, no issues beyond that So, now I have a clean S1 showing only the Connect and a clean S2 showing all other Sonos speakers and not the Connect
  4. LOL I typically have had Brother printers in the past and none of them have had an issue with fast roaming - in fact I didn't even know what fast roaming was or that it even existed until I got this HP printer!
  5. Just happened to stumble upon this technical bulletin from Araknis: https://www.snapav.com/wcsstore/ExtendedSitesCatalogAssetStore/attachments/documents/Networking/SoftwareAndFirmware/AN-AP-I-N_FW_1.1_TSB.pdf See the bottom of the first page: "• Does any equipment NOT work with Fast Roaming/Handoff? • Gen 1 Apple iOS products won’t work. Most newer iOS devices work correctly. • We have reports of HP wireless printers not connecting but no model numbers have been provided yet." My printer? Yup, it's an HP wireless printer
  6. So turning off fast roaming on all 4 APs worked with WPA2-PSK enabled, and even worked in getting the printer on the combined 2.4/5GHz SSID (though I also confirmed that it worked on the 2.4GHz only SSID) It's too soon to know if turning off fast roaming will effect our everyday wifi usage by our multiple network devices throughout the house Thanks again for all the help
  7. But if turn fast roaming off for this AP, I need to turn it off for all of them, right?
  8. I guess I misunderstood - you’re suggesting getting another WAP just for the printer Looks like fast roaming is a global setting for the WAP, so I can’t just have it off for the secondary SSID Oh well
  9. So let me check in the Araknis WAP SSID config and see where I can turn off fast roaming for the secondary SSID and re-try WPA2-PSK
  10. It is but reading online many people report issues getting WPA2 to work
  11. Yeah I figured, like I said not ideal Buying a different printer is not an option, so do you have a suggestion of what security method of those I listed above to try next? Thank you
  12. Finally got the HP printer on the network via wifi, but with some caveats I created a secondary SSID and first tried WPA2-PSK security - no dice So then I changed the security to ‘open’ (ie, no security, no password) and it worked Devices on my primary SSID are able to see and print to the printer without a problem Of course having the printer on an open network is not ideal, but I’m not broadcasting the SSID so I’m guessing that some hacker can’t *easily* backdoor into my network, right? Isn’t this analogous to just having an open ‘guest’ network with no password required? The other options for security mode include: WPA-PSK mixed WPA2 WPA mixed I may try one of these but wanted to first see if anybody knew which one of these would be most likely to work - maybe I could try that one first Thanks
  13. I'm currently logging into each of the 4 WAPs to see which one is the one closest to the printer and will figure out how to create that second 2.4GHz only network and give it a shot Thanks to all for the help and suggestions
  14. How do I do that? I have all Araknis hardware (router, switch, POE and WAPs) And would that negatively impact all the other devices that access that closet WAP? Would I need to reconfigure those devices to be able to connect?
