view audio files on Smart TV.
Installed Samsung Link on Vista Home Premium machine. no luck. then noticed that the TV would no longer see the vista machine ( i could navigate from the TV to the vista machine prior to install) I also have another generice media player in another room that also cannot now see the vista machine.
attempts to fix:
uninstalled Samsung link
unistall another related program "Plex"
system restore (it reported failure to restore indicating restore file was damaged)
checked network sharing and Network was Public, changed that back to private
all sharing settings are checked correctly for normal sharing - Network Discovery on, File sharing on, Printer sharing on. public folder sharing on, pasword protected sharing om, media sharing on
network and sharing center extremely slow to open
when i click diagnose and repair in the network and sharing center i get "Windows has confirmed that this computer is currently experiencing a network connectivity problem" The problem cannot be repaired automatically. I have researched this and tried the recommendations with no luck.
Internet acces is working perfectly.
I have updated and run Malwarebytes to make sure no virus - clean
Also have Avast running with no issues.
I can ping TV and Gerenic media player but those devices cannot see/login to the vista machine anymore.
I have have this happen before and i think it was related to some service that got toggled off, possibly during the installation of the programs mentioned above.
suggestions or questions?
