I have an ATV2. It asks me to turn on home sharing. I do. ATV insists that i turn on home sharing. It worked in my previous location excepting a few times, where I just unplugged the router and ATV and replugged back in. It worked here on initial setup the first try but a few days later this whole stuff happens. It worked again only after I did a complete factory reset. I have read many of the threads online and perhaps it is a bit of daftness on my part. This previous thread on mefi
helped the gentleman with his question. I didn't actually understand it very well. I have an iMac running Snow Leopard. The ATV does connect
to Netflix and all other things. Just not my computer. [more inside]

I'm wondering if there is a browser plugin or other tool that will let me post once in either blogger or twitter, and have my post automatically propagate to my Facebook and Google Plus accounts. It doesn't matter where I put the initial post, as long as it's not Facebook. [more inside]

I'm looking for a way to extend home WiFi into an adjoining building, where laying cable is not an option and packaging/LOS is a concern. I'd also like to reduce equipment cost, while not compromising endpoint throughput. Specific details inside. [more inside]

In the aftermath of Sandy, my office in Stamford, CT, is still out of elecrical grid power and out of internet. Now, the building has diesel power and is letting workers back in today, so I'm trying to brainstorm a way to get them online. [more inside]

What router / NAS combination (or just NAS) do I need to pre-configure and ship to a friend of mine so that I can send files to the NAS over the internet?
He is not at all computer savy. What I am hoping for is a VPN or similar that I can log into without his help and push files / pull files from the drive.

I'm looking for examples of apps, websites, or experiments that have exposed people sharing their information online, or that sought to raise awareness about info being explicitly or accidentally shared. I'd love your help. [more inside]

What are some things, either from your experience or that of others, that one should avoid or at least think twice before sharing on the internet (namely through blogs, twitter, etc.)? [more inside]

Background Info: I'm going to move into a house with 5 adults = 5 computers. No gaming or downloading large video files. But we would all use the computer for browsing the web, email, chatting and a couple of us may be streaming video to watch Lost or some other TV show. [more inside]

Dear Metafilter Community,
I live in a house full of roommates and I am trying to share my phone’s internet connection on our network so that everyone in the household may have an internet connection. Currently, I am capable of getting my phone to give my own computer internet access (via a Bluetooth Personal Area Netowork under ‘Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers’ in Windows 7), but I have not been able to share this internet connection using the Internet Connection Sharing feature.

How do I share my computer's (wired) Internet connection with a smartphone, over bluetooth? That's PC->BT->phone, not phone-as-modem->PC. [more inside]

One internet connection shared between three computers. One jackass who uses the entire download limit(!!) and gets our speed capped(!!). So, what software or hardware solutions might there be??
Secrecy isn't a concern. That they are too stupid to be trusted is. Is there maybe something that monitors where the data is going? And also a way to hobble their line speed, once they've reached their 'share'. (I'd prefer not to just yank their cable out completely, but whatever.) I have no idea (keywords to google??) so I'm completely open to suggestion on this :) Thanks! [more inside]

I have a DSL Internet connection, shared via a Wi-Fi router (a Buffallo). I’d like to provide access to this to a friend (who lives within wireless range), but without them being able to access any devices on my network (such as my windows file shares) or see any of my traffic (my web browsing etc). What’s the easiest way to do this? [more inside]

What do I do about sharing internet with housemates who kill it?
Will a router with QoS solve the problem?
Should I talk to them and ask them to change their settings on whatever programs they are using?
Are there any tools I can use to which person is killing the internet and what program it is? [more inside]

Will it likely be possible to use a 3G iPhone as a modem for a laptop, or to use its data plan with some other hardware? [more inside]

In a similar vein to a previous question of mine, after successfully tackling that problem, I am now again trying to 'bridge that gap'. This time a neighbouring house in our community would like to be wired up for internet.

I need some valid reasons for a (business) subtenant to get his own DSL service instead of sharing ours. Besides the fact that we're not 23 year old singles sharing a flat. [more inside]
