View Full Version : Steaming from MacBook to apple tv over wifi, but dhcp has to be turned off.

At uni for Internet I just have a cat5 socket, to get wireless I plug in my router but have to turn dhcp off and just have it setup as a wireless access point.
Previously my iPhone and iPad haven't been able to communicate with the laptop for things like iTunes remote etc, which I assume is an ip issue.

I want to get apple tv to stream to my tv rather than use a cable, can I set up the devices so they can communicate?

Your college network is probably blocking 3rd party routers..they might disable your point entirely if they discover you're using a 3rd-party device other than a computer or gaming system. Only way you might be able to do it is to setup a private network (wifi) between your computer and Apple TV.

I'm allowed my router, with up to 5 devices. But I hav to just have it as a wireless access point, if I turn dhcp on it takes me to the ISP page telling me to turn it off. I am allowed multiple devices though, I pay extra for the privilege.
