Being this my first message in this forum, i hope i am not at the wrong place. My problem is that i am not able to establish a connection between my N95-3 and Windows Media Player 11 (WMP) running on Win XP Pro.
Let me first tell you about my home network setup. I have Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. Following are some of them important configuration details for my wireless router:
Next, in my N95-3 i created New Access Point (from Tools->Connection->Access points) for my home network connection using following details:
Wireless Network Mode: Mixed
DHCP Server: Enable
SSID Broadcast: Enable
Security Mode: WPA Personal
WPA Algorithms: TKIP
WPA Shared Key: ****
To verify this connection, I tested it using Web and it worked perfectly fine. Now i opened WMP and under Library i selected Media Sharing option and selected following options:
Connection Name: Home
Data bearer: Wireless LAN
WLAN network name: WRT54GS
Network status: Public
WLAN network mode: Infrastructure
WLAN security mode: WPA/WPA2
WLAN security settings:
WPA/WPA2: Pre-shared key
Pre-shared key: ****
WPA2 only mode: Off
Next from my N95-3 i started Gallery->Home network to search for my PC, but it keeps on searching for a minute or two and then finally exits. Even my WMP doesn't show up any found devices under Media Sharing.
Share my media: checked
Media types: All
Star ratings: All
Parental ratings: All
Allow new devices and computers automatically: Checked
I have already made sure that the Media Sharing ports are allowed under Norton Internet Security 2007 program so i don't think it's because of port blocking. What else am i doing wrong here? Has anyone been successful in establishing UPnP with N95-3 and Windows Media Player?
Later i also tried sharing content using Simple Center Home Media Server (http://www.simplecenter.net) which not only identified my N95-3 but also sharing the content was pretty easy. But unfortunately this program doesn't allow streaming the content to N95-3 and instead it can only play the content on my PC and only work as remote control which i am not really interested in.
Could anyone please tell me what is wrong with my setup and why am i not able to find N95-3 under WMP? Do i need to install some plug-in or add-on on my WMP or N95-3?
My N95-3 Firmware details are:
Nokia N95 (19.01)
I would really appreciate your help on this.
Thanks and Regards,
