PS3 unable to detect "wired" UPNP setting

I have a Linksys WRT54GX4 firmware 1.00.20. I recently setup a new HP470 w/MS Windows Home Server to store my downloaded T.V. shows (Divx / Xvid format). I'm trying to stream the videos to my PlayStation 3 in another room. Here is the snag, I have been successful in doing this if I setup my Playstation 3 to use wireless connection to my WHS, but the playback suffers from "stuttering". If I use the "wire" method, I occasionaly see my WHS pop up, but am unable to playpack any videos. The only diference between "wired" & "wireless" is UPNP is detected by the "wireless" option of the PS3.
It doesn't seem Linksys (Cisco) is supporting this model anymore by the lack of any recent firmware upgrade. Any thoughts on this?

SOURCE: Linksys WRT54GS not detected

I am having the same problem with the WRT54XG4 but i discovered that if you disconect the internet port of your router and leave the ethernet port conected to your computer. You can access to the router and you can upgraded.

SOURCE: unstable PS3 connection

good idea to assign your own ip but no need to use dmz...

do the following:

1. reset your router to factory settings, assign urself an ip address (make sure its out of the scope of the dhcp), no need for dmz
2. enable upnp (thats what ps3 uses)
open these specific ports if u are using firewalls

also if u want to make it faster use Port forwarding and then forward the above port to your static ps3 ip address and u will get even lower pings to play games and no lag

You can try accessing the router setup page or the user interface of it byu typing the on the address bar of the computer that is wired to the router and working to the internet, of you can also call linksys tech support so you don't need to reset the router because they can tell you how to change and check all the settings on your router this is the number 800-3267114, but if you want to reset the router just press and hold the reset button of it for 10 seconds,,,,

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Cant open demuxer

If the "Cannot open demuxer" error appears it means the Avi encoders on your system are either missing or corrupt. Please use the following links below to download and install Divx and Xvid encoders. A good way of telling if your Avi encoders are installed properly is if the AVi file being used can play in Windows Media Player correctly.

You would simply need to download the appropriate codec you are attempting to convert to, and also the Windows Media Encoder.

Linksys WRT54GX4 loses internet connection

Not a problem, you have to consider maybe other devices and or networks competing/interferring with your network. If you know how to enter the Linksys router menu I would 1. change the frequency the router operates on 2. change the channel the router will use 3. change the default password to something else besides the default.

All of the settings for your router out of the box are at default, wonder how many other people are running the same thing in your neighborhood? I always change from the default, you may also be receiving interference from devices using the same freq/channel as your router. Changing these will eliminate those possibilities.

Don't forget to encrypt your network, that is most important.

Does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!

The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.

Some divx files (i can see in prewiew on my pc) cannot be opened

That is normal and it is because the codecs on your DAV-DZ100 came with the firmware, and the firmware will not be up to date so soon as the online divx codecs for Windows get updated.

All you can do is upgrade the DAV-DZ100 to the latest firmware version that will contain the most recent divx codecs for this model. Still this will not guarantee that you can view all Divx compression formats.
It is the same on my DVD at home and there is nothing to do about that apart downloading latest firmware.

goto the free site xvid and download free the software. in it is a bit of software that converts divx to xvid. this may work. trying it as it's free and the software will not do anything to the film converted just the header. as the images is the same. the header changes the postion of sound first to second and image first to second. so that it is in xvid . i.e why do you think xvid is divx backwards. nice one
