I have the following problem:
- A Synology NAS Media Server is connected to the Archer D7 router with a LAN cable
- An LG smart TV is also connected to the router with a LAN cable
The LG TV doesn't see the media server
If I modify the configuration the following way:
- Both the TV and the NAS are connected to a TP-Link TL-SG1005D switch
- The switch is connected to the router with a cable,
everything works fine.
Based on this, I think the router blocks the broadcast messages of the media server between its LAN ports, while the simple switch doesn't.
What shall I change in the router settings to allow broadcast messages passing between the LAN ports (make the configuration work without the additional switch)?
The Archer D7 is working in wireless router mode, skipping the modem part, so more or less identical with the Archer C7.
