Recognized passport wireless pro through network

i have a mypassport wireless pro and i am trying to connect it to my PC wirelessly. i am unable to see the wireless pro through the network on my PC when it is NOT connected directly to my PC. the scenario is the wireless pro is connected to my TV thru HDMI and i want to be able to see the wireless pro from my PC which is in another room than my TV.

One way to do it is you can have the My Passport Wireless Pro join your home Wi-Fi network and have your TV connect to the same Wi-Fi network. Then use the DLNA server in the My Passport Wireless Pro to stream content to your TV for playback. (This is assuming you own a smart TV).

Yes I do own a smart tv. that is where my problem lies. i cannot figure out how to get the My Passport Wireless Pro join my home Wi-Fi network?
