Hey, i am having a problem with my computer communicating with other devices on my home network. I am not able to see my wireless printer and also if i run a DLNA server on my tower, my other devices including TV's and tablets do not see the servers I have tried 3 different servers to no avail. Please let me know what info you need. Tower is running windows 7 64 bit with IP address of 192.168.1.2 and ablet has 192.168.1.5 but they cannot see eachother

Can they ping by name? What do you mean by "cannot see eachother"?

I am really Not sure how to explain this but i will try. Devices are on same network, they are able to ping but are not "Discoverable" When i try to install Printer, i get this Screen. When I try to Run a DLNA Server like AllShare Play from my computer, it is unable to discover my tablet in order to stream media. I have tried 2 other DLNA servers as well

I'm clueless about DLNA servers. They push content to other devices rather than other devices coming to them to fetch content?

How are you trying to install the printer? Running an installation package or some more manual way? What's the printer brand and model?

Printer is a HP Photosmart 5510 and im an trying to install it with the original Software CD from HP. I did a factory reset on my modem and retried the printer and still could not find it, I just set it up through its IP address so I guess that's good enough, I moved my TV And hard wired it to my router, so I am able to see the DLNA server through a wired connection, but it does not work wirelessly for some reason. It just seems like my tower is having problems with communicating with wireless devices. I will start checking to see if there is maybe a firmware update for my router that might solve that problem, but I still do not have a way to connect my tablet to my computer using Samsung Allshare Program

Edit: Just Checked the Firmware and it is up to date, no new firmware

It sounds like you have the printer working now. If you have to try installing/connecting again try the installation package from HP's web site in case there is an update to the original version.
