Thanks again for your help. My Internet Speed Test Shows download speed of 486 mbps and upload speeds 10.4 mbps Jitter is 1ms and ping is 14 ms. My cable store suggested I call their Tech services on Monday. It is possible my cable signal might need adjusting meaning my signal strength might be too high or low (or something else).
My iPhone connection to my Aurender also had slow times so I doubt there is an issue with both my iPad and iPhone. It takes about 4-5 seconds for an album to start playing from my hard drive. Since it worked several months ago, I started looking outside of my home. @ozzy62 suggested my Internet connection, so I immediately called my cable company. They said I might have network latency issues (maybe caused my recent upgrade) and they adjusted my cable line signal. It helped a little so I will monitor and call them on Monday, if needed.
In summary, my Aurender is hardwired to a Netgear ORBI satellite router that connects to ONE SINGLE LUXUL XGS-1008 Gigabit switch that connects to my main Netgear ORBI router that connects directly to the Internet. This configuration has worked for years, and this issue recently started.
I rebooted all devices and confirmed all software was current. I signed out of Qobuz and logged back in again. It still takes 10-15 seconds for a Qobuz album to play. My iPad has no data on it and is only used for my Aurender and FaceTime sessions. My iPhone test also had slow times meaning I doubt there is an issue with both my iPad and iPhone. It takes about 4-5 seconds for an album to start playing from my hard drive.
My iPad Air is generation 5, 256gb, purchased last year and is a current model. It has no data on it. My Aurender Conductor App was deleted and reinstalled.
All devices are current and up to date including my N20, iPad and Netgear ORBI router. My single network LUXUL switch was disconnected from power and then reconnected.
After checking all the item above, I concluded the delay start time issue might be caused by my Internet connection and not caused by my equipment or network configuration. Stay tuned. Thanks.
I asked Aurender Customer Support: What exactly does the N20 message "wait, reconnecting” mean? What is it trying to connect to? This might help us solve the issue.
