Cannot add WMP 11 as Media Server
« on: January 01, 2009, 12:35:27 AM »

I have tried to follow the DLink website but I cannot seem to add WMP 11 as my Media Server.  When I get to the Media Sharing step,  the DSM 520 does not show up in the "Share my media to..." box.  The only device that shows up is "My Media Player".  Can anyone shed some light on how to add the DSM so that it can be shared?

Verify the DSM-520 and PC are on the same IP address range. Disable your anti-virus or personal firewall software on the PC and see if they can now communicate. Also make sure you can ping the DSM-520 from the PC.

Ping test instructions
1. Click “Start” and goto “Run”
2. Type “cmd” and press Enter
3. Type”ping 192.168.xxx.xxx” (IP address of the device you are tying to ping test)
You should get 4 replys back.
