Cannot connect Samsung television to shared laptop (allshare problem)
posted by smithsmith to Technology (7 answers total)
Let me preface this question by saying I am a tech n00b and beg your patience.
I recently bought a Samsung LED television (Model UA40D6600). Managed to connect wirelessly to my router fine and can browse the web no problem.
Laptop with shared homegroup is attached to the same router (Netgear DG834G) - also no problem.
When I try and access the allshare feature on the television I get the error message "there is no device connected". I have the allshare app installed on my laptop, yet I can't "see" the television from there either.
I tried forwarding ports related to UPnP in my router settings. No luck. I disable anti-virus and windows firewalls - still can't get the laptop to talk to the tv via the router.
Further information can be provided on request - any help would be appreciated.
