Media Manager - TV doesn't see my PC, because it is behind a Wireless N router

Message 1 of 4

TV doesn't see my PC.  I have the Verizon provider router that connects to the TV and to my TrendNet Wireless NRouter.  Then my host computer for the MediaManager is connected to the TrendNet.  I have other computers on the Trendnet Network as well.  The WireLessN was necessary as the wireless on the Verizon router didn't work good enough in my house.

 

I checked on the host computer had the right ports open and verified that the firewall was open for the MediaManager.

 

I know how to work with the TrendNet router (somewhat).  Seems like I could use static routing or port forwarding, if someone could just tell me where to go here....    The Verizon support folks i talked to would NOT go near this issue.

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks,

jeff

Need a little more info. How do you have the 802.11n router connected? Is it set up as a bridge? If not, you probably have a subnet set up and the STB won't be able to see it.

The N router is a basic out of box configuration.  I didn't do anything to setup up as a bridge. The only thing I did was to point it at the verizon DNS servers.  I do expect that this configuration is the reason the STB box can't see the computer.  Question is what can I do about it?

 

I don't know if this tells you anything but this is my IPConfig...


Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : home
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : <edited for technical reasons by Kathleen>
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.10.200
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.10.1

 

Thanks,

I re-configured the N router to be a bridge and it works and my other computers work fine.  I've can't find the NRouter any more to configure it, but then at this moment, I don't need to <edited as a test Jaime_Lee Community Admin>
