I think I have one of the weirdest problems.
I have been using the WDTV live plus HD for 2 years now. No problems with windows 7 (32 and 64) and vista
Recently I got a desktop to use as a media centre and work station and have the laptop for more everyday uses.
The laptop with the same settings is able to stream wireless to router and then router through lan to the wdtv device.
The desktop which is connected with lan to the router is visible but the media centre takes its time to go inside the media centre option (if it manages) and at some point it times out.
I used 3 different laptops with the same settings and all work fine. If connect the laptops to the lan instead of wireless , the same issue occurs and only network shares are available.
My router is a netgear MR814v2.
Anyone had any similar issues? I also have another linksys router which is newer and I plan to replace the netgear since i got some cat6 wires for better streaming. I will repost when I manage to find time to do that .
