Exclude wired connection from Orbi list

I am using a BRB40 and on the connection list it is showing my MacMini is hardwired but it is also shows it is connected to Orbi.  If this is the case, is there anyway to have it exclude the device?

 

The reason is, the MacMini is also my Plex Server and this might be creating issues with me being able to access the Plex Server outside my home network.

 

I do have the Plex Server set in my primary router as Static.  I also have the wifi shut off in my primary router, the Orbi does all the wifi routing.  The Orbi is also setup in AP Mode.

Re: Exclude wired connection from Orbi list

Ya, while in AP mode, there maybe some devices seen on the list. It's normal detection as it detects only what it's seen on the LAN side.

 

You'll be fine.

Re: Exclude wired connection from Orbi list


What FW is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the IP modem the Orbi is connected too?

How is the system all connected together from the ISP modem?

Re: Exclude wired connection from Orbi list

Ok, probably something that will show up on the Orbi connected clients list....I would not pay too much attention to it...

Re: Exclude wired connection from Orbi list

Gotcha.  Just wanted to make sure it wasn't actually connected to the orbi, but rather just showing up as a connected to device on the network.
