Roku Streaming Stick+ Model: 3810RW

Serial No. YH0042144187
My logitech harmony hub has lost the ability to control the Roku since the update to OS 9 last night. When attempting to reconfigure the hub and rescan my network, it is unable to detect and enable IP control of the Roku Streaming Stick+ on my network. Note that the hub software when scanning is consistently detecting another Roku streaming stick I have elsewhere in the house (and still running version 8 of the OS). All else seems to be working since the upgrade, including the Roku remote (which I never use). Has something related to network IP control of the Roku changed with this version of the OS?
I seem to have resolved this issue through multiple rounds of reset on my home networking gear. It seems the Roku was somehow assigned a local IP address and could stream from all channels, but my router was reporting that IP address was unassigned. This was preventing network discovery on both the Roku app and Harmony app from working. Once I made sure my Roku was assigned a proper IP from my router's perspective, network discovery worked with both apps, and I'm not up and running again with the Harmony. Sorry for the false alarm.
So my problem isn't solved. I continue to have odd networking behavior whereby my Roku Streaming Stick+ is disappearing from my router's connected devices list. Even in this state the Roku has an IP address assigned locally, advertises excellent signal strength to the wifi, and can stream from all channels without incident. However, since it doesn't appear visible on my network, the Roku app (via my Android phone), nor the Harmony can control the Roku, only the provided remote will work. I have a streaming stick (non-plus) in my bedroom that is having none of this behavior. My network config is a cable modem connected to a Netgear R7000 router. I then have that router hardwired to a downstream R6700 configured as an access point, sitting on my TV stand in my Den. The Roku Streaming Stick+ is physically about 4 feet from R6700 access point and is making wireless connection to that node. I have both 2.4G and 5G channel options for connectivity, and tried both with the Roku, without having an effect on this behavior. At this point I'm at a loss for how to troubleshoot this further. Without Harmony control, the Roku is all but useless for my family, and I'm using my Nvidia Shield exclusively for all things streaming now.
