Unless you bought an ethernet switch that has a slightly wrong set of address ranges for multicast built in, so the mDNS broadcasts disappear. Took me ridiculously long to debug that. No firmware update for the switch - they did fix it, but the hardware had changed internally (same model number!) and the fixed firmware wouldn’t run on my device.
