I have a pair of SG108E switches connected with a 2-port LAG acting as my LAN core. No other options on either switch, other than the IP configuration, have been changed from default.
For weeks, this configuration has worked flawlessly on my 1Gbps network with many wired and wireless end devices connected.
However, I have recently purchased a Pure Evoke C-6F DAB/Internet radio, which I had great trouble getting working on my network, in either wired of wireless mode. I could easily get it to connect to the LAN, wired and wireless, but any attempt to get the list of Internet radio stations always resulted in a network timeout error.
This was the case until I noticed that when I rebooted either one of the switches, the radio would successfully connect to the Internet for a very brief period. This lead me to unplugging one of the LAG cables, resulting in the radio immediately connecting to the Internet. It then stays connected until I plug the second LAG cable back in, at which point the radio Internet connectivity is lost again.
So the obvious question is why would a LAG affect Internet radio?
And then, how do I fix it, whilst maintaining the LAG?
