TP-LINK TLPA211KIT Works For Internet But Not Media Streaming?

I've been using TVersity media server via wireless connection from a PC to an XBOX360 and an LG Smart TV using wireless but the connection was a bit too slow for HD video, so I bought a pair of TP-LINK TLPA211KIT powerline adaptors. These work fine when using the internet, for instance for BBC iPlayer in HD but TVersity won't communicate at all over them. I tried uninstalling TVersity and installing Nero MediaHome 4 which comes with the TV but that also won't work over the powerline adaptors. My TV can see TVersity and Windows Media Player over the wireless network but not the TP-LINK. I don't understand how this could happen. Help!

I find the K-lite Codec pack covers just about every video format. The included older style windows media player classic is also far less problematic than windows media - download 'Full' version here;

SOURCE: cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

SOURCE: I bought a TP-LINK TLWN7200ND

i have used a similar adapter on windows 7 as well as on ubuntu 10.04 (linux), and it detects it upon restart without any external drivers.

try on a system with any of these to confirm that the adapter is good. this could be a hardware fault.

also, try changing the card slot as there could be a problem with the slot.

if it works fine on these, then make sure you are using the correct drivers (the ones exactly for this device and not for another similar device)

    • 1 All of the methods described here work best on wi-fi, but can work on 3G network if your computer is available directly through the internet. Ezshare (http://www.antecea.com/) is an app that allows you to mount remote CIFS/SMB, Webdav, NFS and FTP drives. You can then browse/open or copy video files (or any files) directly from your computer through your iPhone. The nice thing about this method is that there is no new software needed on your computer if it already supports one of these protocols. It is the only method that works natively on Linux. The major downside to this method is that you need to have you video files in the native apple (mp4) format.
    • 2 Orblive (http://www.orb.com/en/orblive) is an iPhone app that requires the orb video streaming server be installed. This server then streams your media through the Orblive app. The app work pretty well and is supposed to stream live TV if you have a compatible TV tuner card on your computer. Again, the files need to be in apples native (mp4) format. The Orb server is only available on Windows and the Mac.
    • 3 Air video (http://avatron.com/apps/) is an app that also requires a video streaming server to be installed. It is very similar to the orb server except that this server can convert the video files to play on your iPhone in batch or on the fly. On the fly conversion is great for short videos, but batch conversion works best for large videos. Like the Orb server, the Air video server is only available on Windows and the Mac.
    • 4 Tversity (http://tversity.com/) is a video streaming server only application that can stream video and music to various devices. The movies play on your web browser. It supports the iPhone through the its browser interface. The application can convert the files into suitable iPhone formats, but this can take a while. Unfortunately, Tversity is only available for the windows platform.
    • 5 Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/) is a service that stores your files (you get up to 2GB for free) which can be accessed by various devices including your iPhone. To stream movies/music, just upload them to your dropbox and then you can watch and listen to them on your iPhone. Obviously, you have to go through the process of uploading the files as well as making sure they are acceptable iPhone formats. Dropbox is available for Mac, Linux and Windows computers.
    • 6 Finally, an honorable mention should go to the Slingbox iPhone application (http://slingmedia.com/go/iphone). It allows you to view all your media through the Slkingbox video streaming server. However, you need to have a buy a Slingbox appliance.

Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device

Video File UnSupported


For a video file to be played, the device you're playing it on must have the proper codecs for playback.

With computers you can add codecs as you need them; unfortunately, on consoles the codecs that are supplied are typically your only choices.

Here's a list of PS3 supported video formats.

Here's a list of Xbox 360 supported video formats. (Scroll to A10 under the More Information tab)
Here's a list of PSP supported video formats.

Fortunately, you can work around the supported format limitation by streaming your media to your console from your computer. Here's some streaming software:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite, also works on Xbox 360 despite it's name!) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac


Hope this helped!

Xbox 360 has limited codecs, if you want to utilize more file formats download the media pack on xbox live. but for your streaming pleasure try out TVersity or PS3 Media Server it also supports xbox. just install it on your PC then stream the videos to your xbox.

I have two Linksys WRT-110 routers, cascaded with a cable modem feeding the internet service . My problem is that I am trying to use a media sharing program (tversity, specifically) to stream media files...


Make sure that router 1 is connected to router 2 using lets say port 4 on router 1 to port 1 on router 2 and not the wan port (the one you would normally connect to your modem) on the router. Everything else seems to be correct. Your set up is similar to what I have.

Hope this helps

I wanna use a phone line to get the internet and the music off my laptop to connect to my xbox 360...?


Phone line? As in dial up? No dice. You need, atleast, a DSL connection or faster to get Xbox live.

You can use a UPnP media server, such as TVersity to stream music from your laptop to the 360. What's cool about TVersity is that even though the music you want to play is an unsupported format for your Xbox, it will automatically transcode (make it into something the Xbox 360 can play).

If you have a broadband connection (e.g. DSL, Cable, Sat, etc.) you can have Tversity stream your favorite internet radio stream to your Xbox 360.

Download the latest Windows Media Player, Tversity or These other media servers, install, configure (TVersity is fairly easy to setup), and go look for the Tversity folder in your Music section in the NXE menu.

I wrote a how-to on setting up TVersity here if you need help setting it up.

Hope this helps,

My PS3 doesn't find any media servers. Even though I can browse the internet.What do I need to do to be able to read the media servers? I have a windows vista premium PC and I am new at using a computer.


Hello,

I did many tests with several Media Servers and the following points had often been the Connectiong-Problem to the Media-Server.

  1. Nr. 1 - The Firewall on your PC:
    I tested a few Media-Servers and often the problem with the connection of the devices came up from the firewall (in my case ZoneAlarm).
    To Solve this i stopped the firewall, started the Media Server (e.g. TVersity or MS MediaPlayer) and then I restarted the firewall again.
    After the in 99% of the cases the firewall then asked for creating the rules for the Media-Server Software.

  2. The Router's Port / UPNP-Setting:
    Most of the Media-Servers are needing open ports for the Media-Sharing (e.g. TVersity needs an open Port 41952).
    If the port is not opened for the connection you will in the best cases have very bad Sharing-Performance but in most cases you will at fact of the Port-Problem not be able to create a connection between the devices.
    So you have to open the needed Ports at your Router.

    If you don't want to open each needed port by hand you can also (if supported by the router) activate the UPNP-Function (Universal Plug&Play). With this function enabled each device who needs a open port can open the port by itsself (But don't forget the security problem with this function - Even if it is a fine thing it is really danger).

  3. Problem: New MP3's are not shown on a connected Server:
    Often it is a good Idea to reboot your Playstation and then reconnect to the MediaServer (New MP3's and so are then refreshed).

  4. The IP-Adresses of the Devices
    You have also take to look at the Network-Adresses of the Devices (PS3 & PC). They should be in the same Net-Range (e.g. PS3: 192.168.0.55 & PC: 192.168.0.56).
    The most easy way to be sure that this is done is using the DHCP-Function of your Router. The Router then gives each Device a IP from a predefined Range.
Hopefully I could help you to solve your connection problem with one or even more of the Settings/Points above.
I wish you a nice weekend.

With kind regards,
S. Bosch
