unable to access network
I have a linksys wrt150n router and run a mixed network of macs and pcs. I have media as a shared file off of a mac. I have set up the box office as a wireless, to no avail. It identifies the ssid and is unable to connect. I have shut off all security to facilitate. Still no luck. I then connected through the ethernet. It is able to generate an appropriate ip address, but is unable to access the network. What am I doing wrong?
Do you mean that you can not connect to your computer at all or are just not seeing the shared folders that you have? If you can not connect to your computer make sure that you do not have Mac address filtering selected; that is how my router is selected and the Mac address for my wireless or ethernet connector as to be entered on my router before any device will get connected.
You can find the MAC address of your PBO by pressing stop button then pause button (or maybe the other way around) on the first boot screen of the PBO to get the MAC address; it is the last item on the list.
If you can connect to your computer then it can be the way your shared folders are setup. I am a linux user so I can really help you too much with that since from your post it appears that your shared folders are on your MAC. With Linux I have to use SAMBA on my computer to be able to share the file with PBO.
