Everthing was working perfect for years. I just upgraded my services with my ISP. I had to change my router to a new 802.1ac. My old one is an N router. Now the network shares dont work correctly. I was able to get win 10 to stream to the wdtv but I can no longer view the folders on the win10 from the wdtv. If I go back to the old setup of modem and router. I have no problems at all but I would like to upgrade to the new 802.11ac wifi router. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
With all your upgrading to the “latest” (ISP Services, Router, Windows 10)
Time to think about upgrading the Media Player as well … which is probably the oldest most obsolete of the lot.
The problem might be SMB1 ? which Windows 10 no longer supports (disabled for security) and the WDTV Media Player is SMB1 only … and does not support SMB2/SMB3

Turn on SMB1 and it should work as before.
