Tried wireless connection - Had to manually enter network name, entered WPA password, player attempted to connect but ultimately player cannot find local network (tv on first floor, router on second floor - tv is approx 30' from a computer that is wirelessly connected to router)
Moved player to second floor and tried wired connection - Success!
Moved player back to first floor in an attempt to connect wirelessly again without success, same result cannot find local network.
Moved router and cable modem to first floor to try a wired connection and player still cannot find local network.
This is what I have:
Roku Player, Linksys WRT110 router, intel based iMac, cable internet, wooden tv stand...
I have tried turning router's firewall off and this still does not work.
The router configuration/setup makes me queasy - don't want to accidently turn something on/off in error, making my computer and its connection sitting ducks..
Any help would be appreciated.
