    I have no idea. That's what I'm trying to say. How do I get them on the same network? Have the HTPC as the same I address as the desktop?

    If they are getting an ip from a dhcp server they should all be the same unless you have more than one router if some have fixed ip they have wrong range

    Here's what I did. I had networking and homegroup working last week. I live in japan and have a Buffalo WZR-HP-301GH router. I wanted to put dd-wrt firmware on it so I could use a VPN on my router. I was able to accomplish that OK, but I lost my network/homegroup functionality. I'm not sure why or what I can do to fix it.

    Is that because I have it running in AP mode?

    Right now I have it set up on Automatic configuration -DHCP on Basic Set-up and AP mode in the Wireless-Wireless setup menu.

    changed some settings....

    It's really strange. When I go to settings, network, reset network on both desktop and HTPC, I get different results.

    My HTPC asks me if it wants to be discovered on a network, and when I click on the adaptor in the settings/network/ethernet menu, there is an option to turn the network from public to private.

    On my desktop I am not asked any of these questions after resetting, and I am not presented with that switch when I go to settings/network/ethernet.

    The only way I have found to make my desktop network private is through regedit, but I am still not able to see the HTPC then either...

    ...even after regedit I still see private network in one window and public in another...see screenshot below

    If you re-flash back to the original router firmware , would your networking be restored?
