Any ideas how exactly the joey connect to the internet when you running apps on it?
Does the Hopper 2/3 create sub-network or the internet router distribute the IPs?

When you enable bridging on the Hopper, the moca network treats the Joey as a client. The Joey actually has its own IP address.

It is not a subnet. The router assigns the IP address. Since I have so many devices on my home network, I actually reserve the IP address for my devices based on the MAC address. These work better when they always connect to the same address.

Got a customer with hopper/joey having issue with playing Netflix on the joey. Everything else was working fine. In the router device list the joey was changing status online/offline while playing Netflix at the same time?
