Like many others on this forum I am trying to use the DLNA feature of my samsung ln52a750 without having to run wires throughout my house. I don't want to purchase a wireless adapter for the TV, so here is the setup I'm going with.


1. Connect TV directly to a laptop using crossover cable and installed PC Share manager (latest version)

2. Set the laptop's IP address to 192.168.1.1 (255.255.255.0)

3. Set TV network config as follows:

IP Address: 192.168.1.2 (255.255.255.0)

Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DNS: 192.168.1.1


In effect, I am setting up a small LAN between my TV and my laptop. When I run the network test on the TV, it passes every check except the last one which is the Domain Ping check. I opened Ethereal on my laptop and found that the TV tries to perform a DNS query for ns11.where??.co.kr and ns11.where??.net (I forgot the exact domain).


Has anyone experienced the same issue and have a solution? Thanks.

Is it preventing the 750 from talking to the laptop or seeing your media server? The 750 shouldn't need name resolution to do what you are doing.

When I hit wlink on the remote it says that no devices are connected. I'm assuming it does this since it failed the network test.

User error. I didn't change the state of the TV from Deny to Accept from PC Share Manager. Now everything works beautifully.
