I've read tons of stuff and by now its all a jumbled mess in my head... can't find answers I am sure I read before.... etc. Please help
I have the latest beta firmware on my PBO with internal hard drive installed. I have a compatible RTL8191SU (Zonet ZEW2546) wireless N dongle. I have managed to get the PBO connected to my Linksys WRT120N "Wireless-N" Home Router in WPA2 mode with correct IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway. I can even ping it from the router via my desktop computer which is connected to the router via ethernet cable.
What I can not do is get my desktop to see the PBO nor can I get the PBO to see my computer. I have created a shared folder with an .avi file in it.
I've dug into the Vista settings (network discovery is on etc), the Kaspersky 2010 settings (trusted network), read forums, tips and tricks... not much coverage on this type of device.
I am now to the point in troubleshooting where I need to rule out the PBO and/or my ability to use it correctly as the problem. Can someone give me a step one here?
ps. I have not installed the transcode software. I am hoping to figure out how to do this without it.
