Re: [Windows] Cannot get network shares working with Boxee Box

Yes, that setup is correct, and yes, that is what I am trying to connect to.

I am trying to access Boxee from my LAN, as in share files with it from my desktop.

The Linksys is plugged into the D-Link via it's WAN port. There is nothing else plugged into it, and everything else goes wireless of the Linksys.

That's the problem. You need to connect Linksys and D-Link via both their LAN ports.

I switched the connection to the LAN port on the Linksys just now, and it wouldn't allow internet access through to the wireless devices. Just to make sure, the LAN ports are the ones labelled with numbers, and the WAN port is labelled "internet", correct?

Wouldn't allow internet access on what devices? Are the affected devices IP addresses' in the same network range as the D-Link lan?

The devices which connect to the Linksys router had limited connectivity when I switched the cable over to the LAN port.

The devices connected to the D-Link router have IP addresses in the 192.168.0.xxx range, and the devices connected to the Linksys are 192.168.1.xxx. Those correspond with the IP addresses of the routers themselves, which are 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 respectively.

turn off dhcp in your linksys and allow the drink to provide it for all your devices. You've have 2 separate networks running, but what you want is 1.

Will that cause any problems using things like TightVNC? Since theoretically, this computer and the other computer I use TightVNC on will have the same IP address.

If all your computers are getting IP's via DHCP then they won't have the same IP's. If you have set them statically, then you'll have to re-address the ones with static IP's in the 192.168.1.x scope. How many devices do you have in your network and what is your subnet mask (255.255.255.0) ? And I'd still connect the routers via LAN ports on each one (not the internet port on one to a LAN port on the other).

So I turned the DHCP off on my Linksys router, and it confused my computers into thinking I was on a public network or something. I also got some random weird IP address on my computers.

Would it work if I changed the Linksys router to be within the range of the D-Link router? As in change the IP of the Linksys router itself so all of the IPs are in the same range? That way I can still manage my static IPs (I just add a zero instead of a 1 to the ones on the Linksys router).

And my subnet mask is for the D-Link router is 255.255.255.224, and it's 255.255.255.0 for the Linksys router. I have 3 computers, an iPhone and other random stuff connecting through wireless (the Linksys router). I have two gaming consoles and my Boxee Box connected wired to the D-Link router.
