Wmp11 shareing problems.

Hey i remember you helped me with my router a while back and i was wondering if u could help me again :) differnt problem of course.

Okay, I have a Xbox 360 and i was setting my computer up to share my files with it, so i could view pics, video, and listen to my music. but when i go to the WMP11 to set up the media sharing there's no list of devices to choose from.

I have a screen shot of what i get right here, http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b204/nodnarb23/fixyapic.jpg
Also i have a link of how to set it up right here, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/howto/mp11/sharemedia.aspx#Turnonmediasharing . you see in that link there's a device selection box that doesn't show up for me. that is my problem how can i fix this?

Okay, You may not have your PC on Network Discovery mode (Maybe)

Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center

You'll want Network Discovery on, File Sharing on and Media sharing on. If it doesn't work still if you could maybe define what you have done already and stuff and I'll do my best to further assist you because I've got 3 360's all sharing my computer with ease so I know a great amount of problems with this. But that's probably the main common error with Vistas.

Cannot get Sony PS3 to find the media server on my network. It is a wired connection. The PS3 has no trouble accessing the internet. I have tried DHCP and tried giving it a static address. I've tried...


Shut off the ps3
Go to start, run, then type services.msc.
pick windows media network sharing and stop it
go to c drive, docs and settings, all users, there should be a DRM folder delete everything inside.
Go back to servies.msc and start back up the windows network media sharing
Then turn back on your ps3 and it should work, check wmp11

NOTE: It is your system and your responsibility for using this information. Be careful with what you do if you are unfamiliar with these instructions.hope this helps

Have used my befw11s4 for a long time. Now, when


If you did tamper with the configuration and got it all wrong then use HTTP to access the router and set it to factory default. After that, power on the router, press and hold down the reset switch for about 3 seconds. That will help you out if there is no hardware problem.

Connect dlink to n95


Hello...the pre-shared key is also known as the network key, and you can find it within your router settings.

Open a web browser, and login to your router by typing http://192.168.0.1 into the address bar.

You are prompted for a username and password. Enter username: admin and leave the password blank, or enter your password if you have set one.

Go to Home >Wireless. You should see your pre-shared key, or network key there.

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if this does not work or you need further help.

Not really a problem - but a question


Remember that router will use only 54Mb of bandwidth which will be shared across all users (as long as router is used as access point). Simple mathematics:
1 user = 54Mbps
2 users = 27Mbps
10 users = 5Mbps

Also please note you might have further probems with channel interferences between users when you have all users in the common area

Also remember that 54Mbps will be only wireless Speed. They all will share common Internet connection

Can't stream media through xbox 360 using WMP11


I had the same problem in Windows XP and I just created a workgroup to share files on the network. Follow these steps if anyone is still having this problem. My gf has vista and must do it automatically but it's just a matter of remembering to establish a workgroup.

To summarize:
- Enable sharing on WMP 11 --> This should adjust windows firewall automatically but be sure to unblock ports for other firewalls, if need be.
- Create a workgroup --> Start...Control Panel....Network setup wizard.
Follow the steps, if you're connectnig through a router, select "this computer connects through a residentail gateway", apply this to any other computers that want to share files on this network, if necessary.
Restart computer to let the workgroup settings take effect and voila...your computer will now be detected.

Problem with linksys router


You won't be able to get into the internet until you configure your router - hence the security screen. Go to the Linksys book (or "quick start) that came with it should have given you the router's address and password (for instance http://43.221.16.55.and linksys. It'll also give you password instructions for when the security screen comes up. ) Once you're into your router's configuration page. You should be able to follow the steps and then you'll be home free. Good Luck or get back to me.
