Upgraded router firmware = can no longer connect to PS3

Postby snoochems » Fri Feb 22, 2013 7:35 am

Hi all,

I've been a long time user of PSM (love it), and have come across a problem I cannot fix.

I had a problem connecting to something, and I found a solution by upgrading my Billion 7800N firmware. However, I can no longer connect my PC to my PS3 via PS3 Media Server.

I have tried/confirmed:
-Connection to PC and Router (and internet)
-Connection to PS3 and Router (and internet)
-Can ping PS3 on PC.
-Reinstalled PS3 Media Centre
-Disabled firewall/AV on PC
-Hard reboot of router
-Reboot of PC
-Reboot of PS3 (power off at wall)
-General misc screwing around with router settings and soft reboots.
-Upgrading firmware again (1.06g to 1.06h)

I followed the connection guide in the help section on PSM. I forced the NIC, and changed the port number. No joy. :x

Anyone have any ideas? Anyone with a 7800N on latest firmware that uses PMS.

Moar Details:
•Computer Specs: i7 3930K CPU. 16GB RAM. Windows 7
•Using PS3 Media Server 1.72.0
•Trying to Stream to PS3
•Connection - PC on gigabit ethenet, PS3 on wireless. Via Billion 7800N router
router). E.g. PC <-Wifi G-> Linksys WRT54G Router <-100mbps-> PS3
•Debug log: http://pastebin.com/0YKy0Puq

EDIT : Turns out the router upgrade was a red-herring. The problem turned out to be Windows Firewall blocking javaw.exe. I swear I went through all the troubleshooting tips in the help file. Seems I missed this one.... :oops:
