Google Chrome, Orbi and Apple AirPlay somehow causing issues

Hi all,

 

Whenever on 5 Ghz Wifi on my (recent) MacBook (with up-to-date OSX) googling something in Google Chrome, my AirPlay connection to my wired Apple TV cuts out. Connection is otherwise fine throughout the house, and this doesn't happen when I use Incognito browsing. I've tried logging out of all Google services on Chrome, but this doesn't seem to do anything. AirPlay for some reason doesn't cut out whenever I google something in incognito browsing. Does anyone have a clue what might be going on here? Is using Google somehow taking all my bandwidth? I'm on a 400/40 mbit connection, so it shouldn't be. This problem also doesn't happen when using AirPlay from any other device.

 

Thanks in advance!

Does this happen with any other browsers? IE11, FF or Opera?

Disable MIMO, Daisy Chain and Fast Roaming to test...

Switching off MIMO, Daisy Chain and Fast Roaming don't seem to make any difference.

 

I don't have any of these browsers installed, but in Safari, it doesn't happen either. Puzzling, right? Must be some kind of Google service causing this?

Possibly. Google is know for doing shady things with there browers. I don't use Chrome at all personally unless for testing.

 

Use Safari for a while and see how it goes. Try one of the other browers and see if you notice the problem as well. There mabye some Chrome features causing problems.
