Some networking tips can be found here, and in C|Net's networking forum. Unfortunately, I can't offer much assistance for the limitless number of network setups, but you may be able to get more (possibly better!) network assistance here:
I used a direct wired connection.
Win7 laptop is connected and the settings are configured manually.
laptop: 192.168.1.1/ 255.255.255.0 /gate 192.168.1.1/dns 192.168.1.1
TV: 192.168.1.2/ 255.255.255.0 /gate 192.168.1.1/dns 192.168.1.1
Network test passes all except Internet. Pings between laptop and TV work. So it seems connected.
Then I downloaded PC Share manager from the official site (ver. 4.1 for this tv) and installed on the laptop. Installation went well and I was able to share some folder and to see it's shared etc. The PROBLEM is that when I open the Policy form to accept the connection I see no records there. What's wrong??
Btw, I also tried to connect both devices through the router using automatic settings and installed diff versions of the soft. No luck
