OK, I think I have this nailed to the firewall. Been beating up XBMC dev and other wireless network users and they are unable to duplicate EXCEPT when using the 'mater'. So here is the layout... main office internet -- Buffalo (w 1.11) to that I have my network printer, network storage and 2 hard wired terminals. Living room: WRT54G v2.2 (Tomato) -- xbox All IPs are static and WDS connection established. So if I have a link in my sources I can hit it and stream flawlessly but when it comes time to search for machine the firewall gets in the way. So any suggestions on how I can get around this so I can once again add network shares from my xbox? Dont misunderstand me, I was using WRT and could get through fine but in the race for stability 'T' has won the hands down.
