Wireless Router on School Network- no shared iTunes anymore?

by tylergarrison / April 6, 2005 1:29 PM PDT

I have a Linksys Wireless WRT54G B&G router connected to my PC through the ethernet port on the router. it gets its internet feed from the ethernet jack in the wall via a cable running from the wall to the router. So, the schools connection is run from the wall to the router and filtered into the PC and wirelessly through the air. (yeah, you already know that but i am saying this just to help my question/point). So, I am connected to our the network in my dorm and i can access web pages and games and whatnot, however, I cannot see any shared music on iTunes from other users in the dorm. I used to be able to see others' music via iTunes before I introduced the router into my network, but since hooking it up, others' shared music is invisible to me. I have enabled dmz on the router and turned off all firewalls. still no luck.

what could be the problem here? why can i not see others on the network? any ideas how to fix this?

thanks in advance Happy

Apple has been updating iTunes to block such. At least that's the news I'm reading.

yeah, they updated software so you can only have 5 users access your library. This is not that problem. With that update, others' music is still visible but not accessible (meaning you can see their name on the list but can't click on it). My problem is that I seem to be on my own little private network or something. When my roommate uses my wireless signal, I can see his name on my iTunes list, but only his. My other friends are hooked straigh up into the wall and they can see everyone's music just fine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
