Hi all,
I'm sure my problem is a easy thing for some of you:

I got DSL my modem is connected directly to my PC and I run a wired Ethernet connection to my Living room (on the other end of the house - wired because the wireless connection to my media server was too weak to stream video properly).
Now I got a chumby (little WIFI Device look at chumby.com) I wanted to connect it to my Internet. So I installed a dlink WBR-1310 router at my computer in the office. But the connection to my chumby in the bedroom was very weak. So i Moved the router to the living room and connected it to the wired ethernet there. Now its perfect - BUT now my Media Server (DLink DSM 320) does not find my PC anymore (I am using TVersity to stream). I tried wired (by plugging in Router and MediaServer) and wireless (cant get IP). I prefer to still have it connected wired. I guess I have to change some settings on the router? But since it is connected away from my computer can I even get access to the controls of the router?


If anyone can tell me what to do to get it to work, please let me know.


I found it out myself. Had to turn of UPnP and DHCP.
