I did many tests with several Media Servers and the following points had often been the Connectiong-Problem to the Media-Server.
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.
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).
Often it is a good Idea to reboot your Playstation and then reconnect to the MediaServer (New MP3's and so are then refreshed).
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.
I wish you a nice weekend.
With kind regards,

Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .
