Moved into a new house and couldn't put my router in the same room as my desktop (used as a media server and sometimes private minecraft server).
Did some research and learned that I could use Tomato to repurpose a router to act similar to a wireless card, went through the motions, and I now have wireless internet access with my desktop. Yay.
However— One of the first things I attempted to do was play a movie off the desktop to my AppleTV. No luck. Desktop not even seen as part of the network.
I'm new to all of this, and without reading for hours trying to even determine what my problem could be, I thought I'd crowdsource. I'm assuming I need a patch or a more feature-packed firmware. I'd like to make sure I can port forward in the future in case I decide to run a minecraft server again.
Thanks for not bashing me. I fully recognize that I'm coming into this guns blazing without much knowledge, but I have a cranky fiancee wanting to watch movies again…
