A solid network is the backbone of a streaming system. It is extremely important to have the right networking gear to ensure stable performance and better sound quality from the Lightning device.
We have created a list of routers we have tested to work best with our products. We can not guarantee the Lightning device will work with the home router that comes from your network service provider. An UPnP streaming system requires much higher standard for home network than regular home network usage does.
Modem/Routers from the internet service provider may work but will most likely have reliability problems regardless of download speed.
Attention: Some of network extenders or some technology may not work properly with ARUALiC streaming device, the product with problem that our customers reported are as below:
- All Apple Network devices including Airpot Extreme, Time Capsule and etc.
- Any PowerLine Ethernet (HomePlug) devices
- Netgear EX6200 (wifi range extender)
- Latest firmware of ASUS AC-66U and 68U has broken UPnP protocol. Do NOT upgrade to the latest firmware version.
