Flex 6300
SmartSDR 1.5.1

Running SmartSDR from a laptop directly wired (or through a GigE switch) I see Network quality is good and ping time < 1ms and ZERO dropped packets for long periods of time. Very solid network link.

If I run another client app on the same laptop. as soon as the additional client app connects I see packet loss and ORANGE/RED status on the network graph in SmartSDR. Ping time is sill < 1ms.

If I run the same application on another laptop (a peer on the same network) there are no lost packets.

This happens with the Behringer CMD Micro DJ panel application William Hemmingsen created and the HRI Agent application that Mark WS7M has started.

I've disabled Windows Firewall completely and it made no difference.

Dissbled WiFi, the only NIC on the laptop is the wired NIC to the radio/switch. No difference.

SmartSDR may be reporting the packets sent to the add-on application as lost but I don't think it should do that.

Update: I also moved off the 169.254.0.0/16 default network and placed the laptop and the 6300 onto a router where they ran on the 192.169.1.0/24 subnet (DHCP from the router) and it behaves exactly the same.

Has anybody else experienced this?

This behavior doesn't appear to be occurring in v1.6.
