I have a problem that has just popped up with my home network. I use a lot of remote apps on my IOS device (old Iphone 4S) such as iTunes remote, xbmc remote, VLC remote etc etc.
I also have a multi router setup with two wireless APs, each with separate SSIDs (Lets call them lounge and garage)
All of these remote apps have just stopped working on my iPhone when connected to one SSID (lounge), but they work fine when connected to the other (garage). They were working fine from both last week. The interesting thing is the Apps all work on my iPad on the same SSID (lounge) that my iPhone has stopped working on.
Details of my network are:
Netgear N600 DGND3700v2 - Set up as my Modem/Router/HDCP server - This is also the "Lounge" SSID (both 2.4 and 5G)
This router has my main PC (with iTunes and one xbmc programme that the remotes control), my DVR, an 8 port switch in the lounge and a 4 port switch upstairs
Dlink Di-704up - This is the above mentioned 4 port switch
This just has laptops in a small office connected
Netsis 3108G switch - This is the above mentioned 8 port switch in the lounge
This has the garage wifi AP, a Raspberry Pi XBMC box (one of the other xbmc programmes I remote control) and an xbox connected
Dlink DIR615 - This is the garage WAP with the Garage SSID that seems to be working fine.
So far I have tried to power cycle EVERYTHING, I have tried assigning my iPhone different IPs on the lounge SSID, both Static and DHCP. I have tried hard resetting my phone.
Im now at a loss as to what the issue is. Nothing has changed on the network since it was last working. But I find it extra weird that my phone works when connected to the Garage AP (which is like 3 jumps down stream from the device I want to remote control), but not when connected to the same router as my PC I want to remote.
My iPad works fine with the remote apps on any of the wireless networks.
Does anyone have any idea where I should start to fault find this?
Let me know if I need to provide any further details etc.
