DLNA servers under network locations Solved

    DLNA servers under network locations

    I had a few DLNA servers (originating from the user accounts on my other desktop) showing up on my laptop under network location. At the time, I right clicked some of these and selected to remove the device. Which made them disappear from the network locations. My intention at the time but I now want to restore these.

    The difference to the tutorial linked is I didn't completely suppress the feature via the process above. As I had left some DLNA servers alone and they still show (such as from our windows 7 laptop). How do I go about adding the missing ones back in?

    Same thing happened to me - did you ever find out how to get them back?

    Thanks for letting me know.

    I have managed to get mine back by clicking on "Access Media" in the ribbon for "This PC" in Explorer, followed by "Connect to a media server". This got one of them back the first time I tried it, nothing the second time, but mysteriously did manage to find the other one the third time.

    Note: nothing was actually "broken" in my case - all networking was working fine. I just wanted the icons back under "Network locations" in Explorer when looking at "This PC". Doing the above brought the icons back.

    Hope this helps!

    Oh wow, thank you so much - I had resigned myself to not being able to fix this.
