I currently have a HDD connected to my Netgear Router which acts as a media server using Mini DNLA. It is picked by the XBox 360 over the wired network and also by other media streaming gadgets (o2 Jogglers) over the wireless network. What I am looking for is a gadget that would enable me to stream to a TV's HDMI input. It needs to be able to detect the mini DNLA server either wirelessly or via LAN and then connect to the TV's HDMI input. Does such a standalone gadget exist?
I want to set up a DLNA server (asus MB) to stream TV to my Sony Bravia (N based wifi) unit. I have a dir-655 (wonderful router) and am wondering if it will work to pass DLNA signals thru. It is hardware version A4 and firmware version 1.21... Will I need to upgrade the firmware? Can I get an HD signal?
I have a tv with HDMI and RCA inputs. All I want is to be able to connect my laptop display to the tv without any wires at full HD Resolution. Also, be able to use the 'extend desktop' functionality so that I can continue doing my stuff on my laptop and play whatever on the tv screen (the way I can when I connect my laptop to tv using HDMI).Secondary requirements To be able to connect my iPad and my Samsung Galaxy S2?
I want to setup my home network to run a DLNA server for videos, music, etc. I know that there are many new routers and NAS devices out there that now have the capability to run a DLNA server built-in. My question is, which would provide a better DLNA server: one that is built into the router or one that is built into the NAS device?
i'm trying to hook up mi lorex 4 edge+ dvr to my lcd tv (not. full hdtv) i tried using the hdmi cable and adapter but it gave me a message "system not recognized" i would like to know if there is something else i could try. tv daes not have vga connection.
I have an NTFS formatted USB disk drive (Western Digital My Passport Essential Black 320 GB WDBAAA3200ABK) attached to the WRT160NL wireless router (Firmware Version 1.0.02), and I have video, picture and music files on the USB disk drive in three folders: Videos, Music, Pictures. Auto-scan is disabled, I scan the media files manually by clicking on the 'Scan All' button.
PROBLEM 1 The worst problem is that the router is very sensitive to files that can't be recognized by the router as media files. For example if there are subtitle files (*.str) between the media files, then strange and nondeterministic things happen: some valid media files are skipped and not included in the media database; some files included but the file names are mixed. The most irritating in the bug is that there is no log file, where you could find the problem, and so you never know which file cause the problem, and you have to browse through all the files hunting for the cause.
PROBLEM 2 When the router is in the process of scanning the media files, then the internet (WAN) connection often can't be used, although the router can be accessed and the status says it is connected to the internet.
I'm very disappointed with this EA4500 DLNA feature this is one of the main reasons why i got this router.My Sammy TV can detect the USB that is attached and is able to view the files in the drive but when you play any video file larger than 1gb it does not work even shuts down my TV.Only on smaller files does it work flawlessly I know its not the TV because I have played those files on my previous Router (Netgear WNDR3800) and they even work when i connect the hard drive directly to the TV has any one else had this issue happen to them?
I am trying to stream movies and music to my Panasonic TV. I have a USB hard drive connected to the EA4500.
The TV sees the media on the device and music plays fine. However, every movie I've tried shows up with an exclamation point and when I try to play it I get a message to the effect that "unable to open media". Is the EA4500 media server only compatible with certain movies?
I am running "PLEX Media server" on a PC and have a "Roku" client working perfectly on my home network
I am trying to use the "My PLEX" feature of "PLEX" to stream my content to the internet and access it on a Nook or iPod from any internet hot spot. This requires that the router supports DLNA. I am not sure what this is and am not successful at this so far.
Although it may sound like I know what I'm talking about I am at my limit and do not know how to determine if my router will support DLNA.
Is it time to get a new router or is there something I need to do to the router so it supports DLNA?

My hp mini will not connect to the internet, even with a cable directly from the modem. We downloaded a bunch of games from the internet, and then in removing the junk, may have deleted vital components. My device manager has "other devices" and under that has "ethernet controller" and "network controller," neither of which has a driver. Windows was unable to find a driver when I tried to reinstall the driver (although I'm not sure whether there should be one - the icon next to everything in this category is a yellow question mark). I thought the problem was just a wireless issue until this morning, when I hooked it up with a cable to try to find a wireless driver. It does not connect with the cable either, and now I am really lost.
Cant connect to wireless networks with HP MINI 110 Notebook....Device manager show Atheros Fast enternet is connected and working properly. Dont see any icon on taskbar for wireless.OS is Win XP PRo...
I am using a Dlink 655 router. On the inside are DHCP systems. On the outside is my server. I cannot seem to get the inside machines to recognize my file shares outside the dlink. The outside server is a MAC mini. Any machine outside the server can see the file shares (regardless if they are a Mac or a Windows PC - So I know that SMB is set-up properly).How can I get the inside servers to see the file shares on the outside machine?

My wife has a little Dell Mini running Windows 7 Starter. It connects to the network but gets a message that it cannot connect to the internet. Other laptops on the network CAN connect. This issue is new, the laptop has been fine up until a few days ago.
Per a separate thread, I went to the command prompt to try to run the ipconfig all but it comes up as user/owner and I don't know how to get to admin mode. Also, the proxy option is unchecked.
I replaced the internal hard drive on my Inspirion mini 1018. I installed the Windows 7 operating system and all the drivers. Yet I cannot access the internet, even with my DSL plugged in. I do not use wireless and do not wish to.
i am connecting my laptop pc to my hdtv via a wireless gizmo. the gizmo has a dongle transmitter connected to the pc via the hdmi port and the usb port for power, on the receiver hdtv end the receiver box connects to the hdtv through the hdtv hdmi port and to the a/c power on the wall, all this is to replace a hdmi to hdmi cable connection. i hope i,m clear so far. now i want to clone my pc screen to my hdtv screen i.e. i want to see the exact same image or video on both my pc screen and on my hdtv screen and here lies my problem, as i stated in my original post, i am unable to do so using the fn/f8 keys or the microsoft key/p options i have on my pc keyboard. using these keys i can see a video on either the pc laptop screen or on the hdtv screen but not on both at the same time which is what cloning or duplicating means? the internet posts related to this issue recommend using my nvidia control panel to achieve cloning, i have also tried that approach with no sucess because when i go there, i do not have choice for cloning, it seems it doesnt recognize or detect a second monitor?
