When I open up Kazoo I cannot see any Rooms/DS's

  • Also on your Windows PC
    • Go into "Settings" > "Network & Internet" > "Change Connection properties"

Kazoo freezing/hanging on Windows PC

There have been reports that Kazoo keeps freezing/hanging and to get control back you have to quit Kazoo and restart it. This is because Windows is putting the network connection into sleep mode without telling Kazoo and causing poor communication.
  • One way to stop this is to go into Device Manager (right click the Windows icon),
  • Click on the “Network Adaptors”,
  • then the “Power Management” tab and DISABLE the “Allow computer to turn off this device to save power”
