    If it works fine on WiFi and based on your equipment, it sounds like the ethernet switch may blocking Multicast which is needed by the Bluesound player to be discovered. If its a managed switch, you should be able to adjust some setting that relates to this.

    That or the ethernet switch has a different IP subnet, but more likely the former scenario.

    Sam, thanks for your input.  I have already tried bypassing the Netgear switch and plugging directly into the back of the AT&T router... crickets!  I have a Andover Songbird streamer and a MOON ACE and neither had an issue connecting in the same spot with the same equipment and routing through Netgear switch.  Same Cat 6 cable.

    This is a bit of a longshot - but have you tried a Cat5 cable with the Bluesound player? They are compatible with Cat6, but I have before seen the case where switching to a Cat5 actually works where a Cat6 didn't
