I'm 90% sure that the Private Address in the Wifi setting interferes with the ability of iPhones to "see" Homepods

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

Previously, I always get "Unanswered Homepod" when I check its status in the iPhone Home application. My iPad and Macbook are in normal condition. The difference with these devices is that I always leave my iPad and Mac at the office (so always connected to the wifi desk), while I bring the iPhone to and from the office. I researched quite a bit about how to fix my phone problem and fix the following: 1. I reserved the IP addresses of my Homepods by setting up the router 2. I disabled the private address of my office's wifi settings on iPhone. Of course, I didn't have any problems after that for almost 3 weeks, until I updated my iOS to 14.8 last Tuesday. I didn't notice that the update will automatically switch the private address to "enabled" again. Today I saw that one of my homepods does not answer again on my phone, but not on the other devices. Then I checked the wifi connection and the private setting is activated. I turned this off and restarted my phone and everything is fine again so far
