Can you see network shares? Can you connect to youtube, flickr etc. Have you tested your network connection via the network setting menu? Finally did anything happen with the WDTV just before this occurred, for example did you update firmware? Have tried resetting to factory defaults and recycling the power on the WDTV. What firmware are you running?

yes i can connect to my network ,my online connection is fine everything is working except for the media servers the computer sees the wdtv when i switch it on but the wdtv doesnt see the computer i have reset the system ,turned of the power to no avail im not sure what it can be . i am using the latest firmware which i think is .24 i would use network shares but that seems to go all shaky after 20 mins or so . i have just updated to .21 and still no joy
