Hi, I have recently connected Emby to an access point (DD-WRT 192.168.1.2) which is connected to my main Router (TP-Link 192.168.1.1). Ever since EmbyServer.exe has been running, I have had constant Router crashes and restarts due probably to some floods whether it's SSDP or UPNP-related or multicasts or whatever the problem seems to be. Whenever Emby is not running, the network seemed to work flawlessly. When Emby is on, I have multiple router crashes/reboots and various difficulties in accessing my main router's GUI page beside losing internet connectivity. With my previous firewall I could not stop specific protocols of Emby from being sourced from my PC and reaching my router and thus causing it to crash, so I had to stop using emby for my network and internet to work correctly. Emby's log did not seem to show anything out of the ordinary or erroneous. So I downloaded zonealarm which I am familiar with, I had to put 192.168.1.1 in the list of public zones and adjust Embyserver.exe's access policy to restrict it from accessing internet/public zones. The problem seems to have been resolved so far with emby still servicing other devices on the network while being blocked from addressing the router directly it seems. Kindly advise about this matter and do tell if there is something else which can be done from my side (other than the firewall workaround) or maybe in future releases. Thanks in advance, JG.
