Finding Files with New WAP added
This may be an easy one from a relatively new user, but heck if I have been able to figure it out.
I have had the Boxee on my network everything working fine with 2 PCs (1 wired 1 wireless) and Boxee (wired)all into my Verizon provide router. All systems go, sharing files, internet access, etc..
The wireless aspect of the wireless router is real bad out front of my house/in the garage, so since I had an old DLink dir-625 wireless router I figured to hook it up downstairs and at the front of my house.
I basically took the Ethernet cable running to my office computer downstairs (previously on the network with the Boxee and everything else) ran it into the internet slot on the router and then ran another Ethernet cable out of LAN port #1 on the router to the office computer. Good solid Internet in garage and all PCs and Boxee, but for some reason the Boxee no longer sees any files on any of my 2 PCs.
To get more specific about he infrastructure set up.
Internet in house to Verizon Router, 2 cables off ports of Verizon Router, on downstairs directly to Boxee, one downstairs used to be direclty to office PC, now directly to Dlink WAP with ethernet port one going to Office PC
It almost seems like the Boxee is on a workgroup with the Verizon Router and the other stuff is on a workgroup with the DLink Router, I've tried renaming workgroups, disabling, etc..) No luck with anything..
Eternally grateful to anyone that can help me out..

I'm having a similar problem after I added a switch - the Boxee no longer finds any of my files. My setup is Modem==>Router==>Switch==>Boxee. The only other thing connected to the Switch is a PS3.
