Unfortunately I have no control over what switches are used for the network, and I can't take the host computer off the dante network.

Couple Options: Create another Vlan on the new Switch for the SoundGrid Network devices. Connect all your Soundgrid cards and Servers to that VLAN. Use a USB or Thunderbolt NIC on the control computer to access Soundgrid Network. Then use the Built in NIC to access Dante. Or Vise Versa.

Hear Technologies makes a Dante to Soundgrid Bridge.

Use your old switches to make a separate "Soundgrid Network" with their own switches.. Transfer audio between networks with the Bridge.

I would still get a USB NIC for the Remote control computer.. No problem to use a dongle for the Dante connection if you want to keep the built in NIC for the Soundgrid Network

I use the built in ethernet nic for Dante (and used to be soundgrid too) and use the wifi for non essential stuff, vnc, web, etc/.

This might have to be the answer I guess.

I have a Cisco SG300 sitting here unused. We had a pair of those running the Dante just for this room, but then we expanded to sending dante between buildings, etc. IT wanted the same switches everywhere for easier management. It was an issue getting the Cisco switches to live happily on the predominatly netgear network.

Test your devices by connecting them directly to each other.
If it still doesnít work itís not your switch/network, itís the devices.

Thereís more to it than IGMP so look into that too:

To be clear, I'm not having any problems (currently) with dante. It's getting soundgrid to live peacefully on the same network as Dante. Soundgrid is Waves' proprietary version of digital audio transport. As of right now I have to use soundgrid to connect the console to the servers and the imac host running the multirack host software.
