Stop turning off your computer at night :P

Seriously, the Roku periodically polls to make sure the shares are still available (every 10 minutes, I believe). When you turn off your computer the Roku removes the share the next time it polls because it can't find it anymore. Theoretically, they should show up again 10 minutes (or whatever the interval is) after you turn on the computer, but that seems to be erratic at best. Rather than rebooting, you should be able to go into Network Shares and just click the Save button to get the shares to re-appear.

Hope that helps,

You could have your PC do Cancer research (www.ud.com) or search for aliens (www.seti.org) or test how robust are various encryption techniques (www.distributed.net, potentially win $10,000 prize!). Could also have it search for the "next" prime number and get your name in lights if you find it (I forget the link to that software).

Another "thing to do with your computer when you aren't using it" would be protein folding research simulations:

Question?

Wed Jul 27, 2005 11:44 am

I just sent my Linksys WET54G back to linksys for an exchange becuase it broke. The wireless light stopped working and didnt send any signal. For those of you who have the same bridge, does yours also have the 2 blinking lights on the bridge. The eithernet and the wireless light blink when i play something on the Roku. Does anyone else have the same problem? Maybe when i get my new Bridge then my other problems will be solved. Any comments?
