    I have read almost all of the HR20/21 threads regarding networking and I am still amiss.
    HR21 with D* power-line connected to my Wireless router connected to cox cable.
    HR21 show connected to network ok
    DOD working great!
    D* power-line sofware finds HR21
    Windows updated media player 11 does not show HR21 in media share box!
    I have trend micro security software and all firewalls including windows are off?
    I am not super computer savy but could be talked throu.
    Where do I start to troubleshoot.
    I have over 40gb of music I would like to stream.
    Am I a candidate for tversity( I am really reluctant to add anymore software unless I have to)?
    Thanks for anyone's help.

    Have you completed the configure sharing piece under WMP11?

    Tversity is another good option, the choice is really up to you.

    I am not sure I am doing thise correctly.
    I have tried tools>library>share media and nothing shows up in the box ?

    Is there another way. I am on laptop so not in front on my home pc!

    Sounds like you have done everything correctly. Only other thing I can think of is restarting your HR21.

    Are you on XP or Vista?

    XP rebooted all but the modems which is what I will do when I get home. I wonder why the HR21 sees the network but the media player wont! I know there is alot out there in regards to IP addresses, could this be an issue?

    Can you list both the IP address from your machine and from your HR21?

    Open a command prompt and type "IPCONFIG".

    Also, just to be sure... do you see any devices in the WMP11 share box? If there's one that says "Unknown device" that is probably it.
