Anyone have their HomePod on a separate network for HomeKit?

Hello guys

I was just wondering if anyone else has their HomePod on a separate network? I have mine on my home IoT network, along with all my HomeKit equipment. However, my phone is in my private home network and I can control all HomeKit devices very well. Air playback works well in both networks as well.

My main problem is in the home app, it continues to show the annoying error that HomePod is not on the same WiFi network as my phone. It’s not wrong because it’s not, but it has a firewall rule that allows it to talk to my phone on the private network. It won’t allow me to add reminders via Siri either when I ask, because my phone is on a different network than the HomePod.

Has anyone else had this that has separate networks in their home?

Thank you
