Question about HP Pavilion DV5234US Notebook Laptop
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1080eo Entertainment Notebook PC with Windows Vista, I believe it's the Home edition.
I recently bought a Playstation 3 and was told that i could connect the two via the wireless net. So I could access music and video files on my computer on my Playstation.
I can't seem to figure out how. I choose the search for media servers on ps3 but it doesn't find anythig. I've tried to open sharing om my windows media player 11, but I feel I end up stuck at some point, there's something I'm missing.
Is there something I need to download? Or is there a simple setting on the laptop?
First things first, you have to allow sharing on your laptop. to accomplish this, go to control panel, open "network and sharing center". make sure the following are on -> network discovery, file sharing, public folder sharing, media sharing. Also make sure password protected is off. now the stuff you would like to accses on your PS3, go to the main folder of where everything is located, right click the folder, select share, it will bring you to a screen whit a drop down box by deafault has the name of the User Account. change that to "everyone" the select add. click next.
Now you have to do something else for media player.
make sure ps3 is on
Open WMP. select tools->options->library->configure sharing-> check off share my media-> click ok, and that should do it
