  • Network traffic isolation

    for anyone considering setting up a music file sharing network I have a few suggestions and others feel free to share.
    Dont use your router directly in your music network
    this simply means don’t connect your music pc or nas or steaming pc to it directly
    now an alt is a second router that has another ip network share nkt of the home or private group. This makes the network traffic only for what is on this shared network ip.
    This is best of you don’t have a Linux or win based nas pc setup. Of you do install a Four port pci network lan card and make the pc main one the new ip this nas now is your router with network ports and houses the hard drives to share your music.
    If your not going to make your own nas /router switch then do this.
    Use one network switch only for nas , pc , steamer.
    Put this on an lps and try using as is it should be a notible improvment. Try unplugging your network cAbke attached to your network and listen for changes.
    Keep in mind if I plugged there is no internet as such no streaming services.
    The above is a good start for anyone no matter how complex the rest of your place is.
