nothing there that was obvious to me. The router did have a tool for pinging an address, and i pinged the soundbridge and received a succesful reply from it.
The soundbridge is saying that it can see a server, but not one it can recognise (will that be the one in itunes maybe?)
Above the multicast drop down, it had a couple of other dropdowns ‘RIP’ direction and version. This anything pertinent? (on the tcp/ip settings).
I assume that my problems are, as I suspect, in the router, rather than elsewhere since it is the same on both the laptop and desktop?
