I have a challenge, that I hope you can help me with!
I have bought a Directstream DAC and an Intel NUC, and am now trying my best to get them to function together through the Bridge II connection. The setup is looking like this:
PS Audio DAC <–> Bridge II <–> Ethernet cable <–> Intel NUC with local music storage running ROON ROCK <–> Intel NUC WiFi <–> WiFi router connected to internet <–> iPhone 6 with ROON remote
The idea is, that I want the direct ethernet connection between the DAC/Bridge II and the NUC, and want to access the ROON core using the NUCs WiFi instead of adding a switch in the setup.
I read that someone managed to make the direct ethernet connection, so I guess my problem is using both the NUCs ethernet and WiFi at the same time? Can this be solved?
I have set the ethernet IP to be static in Roon ROCK, and am putting those data into the DAC, so that they match. I have tried using both a normal ethernet cable and a cross-over ethernet cable.
The ROON remote can connect to the ROON server, but find no devices directly connected to the core.
Any help will be much appreciated!
Best regards from Dennis
Unfortunately I can’t put more than one image in the post, since I am a new user… The image below is from the remote ROCK access, where I am defining the IP to be static. The exact same data I put into the Bridge II.
