I may be going down a bunny-trail here, but when I put a packet-sniffer on the network I see that as it passes the "connecting to your local network" phase the ROKU (0.0.0.0) negotiates with the DHCP server :
DISCOVER > OFFER > REQUEST
(But I see no ACKnowledge from the DHCP afterwards)
If I go to the router/firewall and check under DHCP section, it has in fact allocated an IP address for the ROKU, and marked it as active.
But as I peruse the log I see there are NO packets originating from the "assigned" IP address, and when I hit retry on the ROKU it tries to lease a new IP from the DHCP all over again.
Does this help shed any light on my situation?
Or am I completely lost down this cold and dark bunny-trail?
