    Hello.*

    I'm having a problem which I can't fix and wondering if you can help!? ; )

    I have a Mac Mini connect to my Wireless Router (Gateway 192.168.4.1) I have enabled Internet Sharing on 10.5.8 on Ethernet and have a Cable Running to my Samsung LED 40" HDTV and can happily access the Internet@Tv functions no problem.*

    My problem is the Mac has assigned the Tv on gateway 192.168.2.1 which is different from my Hardware wireless router of 192.168.4.1.*

    I have the Samsung Tv IPhone Remote App. My iPhone is connected via the Wireless router on 192.168.4.1 and my Tv is on 192.168.2.1 so they are not picking each other up and not connecting.*

    How can I change my shared connection to use the hardware routers gateway of 192.168.4.1 to allow my networks media sharing capabilities and connection of other wifi devices on the hardware router?

    Thanks for you time

    James

    The easiest way would be to plug the ethernet cable from the TV straight into your wireless router. Although I don't know the control app in question it sounds like it relies on local broadcast domain traffic to work, so crossing a router boundary (which Internet Sharing on your Mac provides) blocks it. Does your wireless router have ethernet switch capabilities?

    My wireless router is downstairs by the only phone socket. And I don't want cables running through the house a it's shared. Was hoping it would be simple terminal commands or something : (

    Thanks for your reply

    You could always use a wireless bridge to replace your Mac in the setup. Linksys do one.

    Here on Amazon
