I hope this is the right forum. I have plex media server running on my home PC. I have enabled remote access, but continue to get disconnected. It will work for a few days then disconnect. I Setup a static IP on my router (Nighthawk R8000) for the Home Pc and did the Manuel port forwarding to try and cut down on the disconnections. It doesn’t seem to help. I’ve looked through the forum for both plex and router. Looked at YouTube videos, but to no avail. Anybody else have this problem or solved this?

thanks.

If you are experiencing this and are not using a vpn, have properly assigned a static ip to that computer and forwarded your port, then I'm sorry to tell you in my opinion it's the router itself.

I used to use the N7000 and it also had an issue with Plex remote steaming. I switched to an Asus router and haven't had an issue since.
