Okay. So you run firefly on a machine that’s wired, and hook the roku up wired and it still doesn’t see it?
It sees it, but I can’t connect to it.
Okay, that’s something. Let’s try and fix that and see if it fixes the wireless issue (I don’t know how likely that is, but it’s worth a shot).
If you see it but can’t connect from the roku, the best test is to see if you can connect to he web page with a browser. If you have a second pc (or laptop), try going to http://server.ip.address:9999 and see if you get a web page served up. It will probably ask for a password, and if so, then it’s a good indication that the daap server is running.
If you aren’t using svn-1586, then grab that from http://nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org.
Does this machine have anything strange going on networking-wise? Does it have more than one ethernet connection? Does it have any vpn interfaces (hamachi, cisco vpn, anything like that)?
But i couldn’t find ANY of these options on my router admin page. I contacted them and they told me they didn’t support UPNP, Multicast or IGMP, WMM or AP Isolation!! So I couldn’t change anything.
Hrm. that sounds strange. You’d think they would be getting beat up by iTunes users if that were the case.
