WRTSL54GS Media Server not working

    I am running a WRTSL54GS wth Media Server but it doesn't seem to be working. I have downloaded Intel's uPnP tools to "spy" on my Router's Media Server but it keeps losing its connection. The media server will appear for awhile then go away and then come back.

    Anyone have any ideas on what I am doing wrong ???

    Thanks

    Well firstly you aren't describing your problem very well.

    What exactly goes away and comes back, your wireless signal, or what? Much more detail needed.

    My Media Server seems to come and go. I have A Meida Client on my computer that will see my Router's Media Server in its list of available servers but it will just disappear then reappear in the list of available media servers.

    I have enabled my uPnP media server on the router and when I try to connect to it from my media client I see it in the list but then the media clients list refreshes and it not there. But after about 5 seconds it refreshes again and its there again.

    My computer is hooked up to the router as a hard wired connection. I have no problem that I am aware of getting to other computers on my network nor am I having any problems getting to the internet through the router. I have a USB hard drive attached to the router that I am able to read/write to also. (which wasn't an easy thing to get done for Windows XP).

    I'd leave a ping running in a command window and see if you see anything there, at the time these events occur.

    I'd be tempted to also try HyperWRT Thibor firmware, but I'm a firmware slut and there are risks with flashing firmware, etc.

    Could be some client-side issue. Do you have another client device (or can borrow one) that would show the same problems? If it happens on both and at exact same times then you can be more certain it's a problem with the router. Quite frequenlty what I think is a network issue just turns out to be a driver issue on my client PC or something.
