>>Try testing with a WOL app (not MC).

Well, I'm stumped (relatively easy that) .  I tested WOL with Android app WoIon. No visible result from WOL, but same anomaly -- PC lost Internet, until reboot.  So it's not an MC- or JR-specific cause. I'm thinking the adapter (Qualcomm QCA9565, 2017 Dell PC) is getting the packet and messing up, or it's a router issue (I think it's irrelevant that I have Google Fiber with a router built in to their modem still broadcasting, but I only use and configure LAN from my Linksys). I'll experiment more, and meanwhile hope my immediate problem (for JRemote to wake sleeping PC) will be solved by only manually letting the PC sleep.

(Meanwhile, I got distracted last night with the 'customize views for JRemote' options in tools>options>media network>advanced, so now within jRemote2's Audio items I can search for any song title, or about anything else I can set up.  Often hard to find, but it always seems there's a way to do what I'd like MC to do.)

 Thanks again!

(I think it's irrelevant that I have Google Fiber with a router built in to their modem still broadcasting, but I only use and configure LAN from my Linksys).

It probably is irrelevant in this situation, but having yet another wireless device broadcasting locally isn't going to improve your WiFi connection strength.

All ISP Modem+Router devices I have used allowed the device to be put in "Bridged Mode", which basically turns off the Router part of the device and leaves it just acting as a Modem. I strongly advise you to look into that, and do it if you are using your Linksys for all wired and wireless Router requirements.

I found a recent Dell page that specifically refers to setting the BIOS to allow Wake On WLAN. See the BIOS section of: https://www.dell.com/support/article/en-au/sln305365/how-to-setup-wake-on-lan-wol-on-your-dell-system?lang=en#BIOS-settings

Turn that on.

I haven't been able to find specifications for the Qualcomm QCA9565 that confirm it supports Wake On WLAN, but it probably does if it is in a 2017 Dell PC.

What is the model number of your Dell PC?  The specifications for the model often document what form of WOL is supported.

Thanks, you guys are great!  I've been indisposed, but quickly for now...

It's a 2017 Dell Inspiron 3650.  I found a post for WOL issues on this model,

http://www.fileerrors.com/dell-inspiron-3650-unable-to-wake-from-sleep.html

that recommends downloading a "repair tool," but I'm not inclined to download a tool not from dell.com, and will check BIOS from the dell.com link you sent.  I found other dell.com WOL-issue posts for the 3000-series, with solutions setting the Realtek adapter (ethernet, unlike my all-wifi set up; all devices on the same Linksys EA7300 LAN).

For the internal Qualcomm adapter, Windows Device Settings indicate it is WOL-capable. Power management properties (on/off) are:  "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and if that is checked, "allow this device to wake the computer," which if checked enable the option to "only allow a magic packet to wake the computer."  I think I've tried every variation of those properties but will try again methodically, to be positive.

(The Google Fiber router was in bridge mode, but after I needed to look at settings and power it down once, its network started broadcasting, and I let it be.  User error no doubt, thanks for the advice, I'll find its bridge mode setting.)

Thank you again. I'll try everything I can and report back when I find a solution (or not).

Best, Rick

Don't use that tool, or site, ever. At best it is trying to sell you a tool you don't need. At worst it contains Malware and is a scam or is trying to steal your personal information.

Any site anywhere, except maybe Microsoft, Intel, or a few other brand name sites (always check the URL), that offers a Windows Repair Tool is usually a bad player. The above looks particularly bad.

I had a look at the Dell Support site for the Inspiron 3650. No help at all specific to your model. If you don't find the setting to turn on in BIOS, perhaps confirm with Dell that the PC has the capability for Wake On WLAN.

The good news is that the wireless card does look upgradable if your current card doesn't support Wake On WLAN.

Probably when it's ready to be released. Can't really rush this kind of thing but Hendrik is actively working on it and getting Cloudplay working in it, like he said on the previous page. :)

Is there an issue trying to Chromecast playlists or multiple albums? I can play all of an Artist's albums or a Playlist to the local device, but they won't play when I try to Chromecast the same thing (Now Playing never populates.) However, if I play a single album or track Chromecast works just fine.

??

Also, is there a way to show the whole Now Playing list - not just only the current track?

On the Now Playing screen, swipe from the right to the left to load the playlist.

Thank you for the Now Playing tip...

My JRemote2 problem with Chromecast seems even more bizarre now that I keep working on it. Only some Playlists and some multi-album Artists won't play when casting (single albums by any Artist always play.)

Examples:
- I have a playlist "Audio: Chill" that plays just fine on device, but won't play if Chromecasting. Whereas my playlist "Audio: Dinner Jazz" plays fine in either case.
- I have multiple albums for each of the artists "King Crimson", "King Crimson Collector's Club", and "King Crimson ProjeKcts". The first two only play on the device, not when Chromecasting. The latter plays in either case.

I have a fairly large collection and could create scores of similar examples. I can't see any reason why enabling Chromecast should make a difference, or why some Playlists/Artists should be affected and others not.

Ideas?

Chromecast has certain limits, if a playlist is too long it may not work. If those are particularly long, try using more manageable playlists.

Well that's probably it then. I'll edit my SmartLists to limit the # of tracks until I get a size that works thru JRemote2....and live with the limitations for Artists.

Thanks.
