Hi

I have recently upgraded my router to a BT home hub 2, since doing so I have been having connection issues with my HomePod mini, upon disconnecting and reconnecting it again to try and solve the issue, it advises that some functions won't work because my wifi network does not support Peer to peer connections. Is anybody aware of how I can solve or work around this issue?



Thanks in advance.

You need to turn off a security feature called variously client/guest/access point/wireless isolation/security. This feature grants wireless devices a route to the Internet but hides devices on the network from each other, which prevents HomePod from working as intended.

Thanks for your help, I turned off the smart set up on my router which is similar to what you are referring to above, I also turned off the 5GHz, so all devices are on the same channel. Its working better, in that I can at least get the HomePod connected to Apple TV but its still slightly intermittent
