To be sure that the the problem doesn't come from our apps, you can check if your device appears with Media Browser app which is installed by default on Zappiti media players (located in MyApps). If Media Browser is not able to see your computer, the issue is linked to your local network.
- Devices have to be located on the same local network.
- Control Windows network options.
We cannot make a list with all options which can be te reasons.
However, important parameters to check should be in section "network and sharing center", or "Windows homegroup" or other similar designations.
- Be sure that there is no third party app which interferes into the dialog between the computer and the local network.
A program which is too restrictive could prevent the device to be detected by the other devices of the network.
- Check if the Zappiti media player and the computer are on the same subnet.
To know it, control the IP adresses of each one.
They are usually named like this : 192.168.X.Y (for example : 192.168.0.15 or 192.168.1.20)
If the penultimate numbre (0 in case of 192.168.0.15) is not identical, so the two devices are not on the same subnet.
To resolve that, you have to reorganize your local network or assign static IP addresses using your router (with MAC address).
- Switch off all your devices from your network, then restart if again one by one, begin with your internet box or router
