I opened Eset and turned each feature off. Both antivirus and firewall settings say they are disabled. The Action Center within Windows also reflects any and all anitvirus/firewall protection is off.
okay in this case they are not deactivated. only the user interface is disabled but the service and so the basics are still active.
you need to disable all Firewall services on the PC. But, to my knowledge this is prevented by eset meaning that you can not disable their service.
you can try but if it will not work it comes down to a deinstallation
you also neet to disable the windows firewall service.
Figured out how to manually turn off eset. Had to go into advanced settings and make sure everything had stopped functioning. It is completely off now, and windows firewall is off. Still nothing. I did noticed that I have a "honestech2 - Intel Code Wizard Generated DMS" appearing in my Network under devices...this appeared after I installed the wifimedia software. However when I click on it to open it, it doesn't do anything. The icon in my tray is still grey.
I also went into Advanced Settings in windows firewall and under both the Outbound and INbound Rules I enabled/allowed anything that might be blocking incoming/outgoing traffic--ie preventing the laptop and TV from communicating. I enabled such things as: Connect to a Newtork Projector, all netowrk discovery options, media center extender UPnP and SSDP, iSCIS Service...basically anything that had been listed as blocked by the firewall has now been enabled.
Any other ideas?
Im sorry to see that it still does not work.
As it comes down to serveral Reasons which might affect the Communication i would suggest to get in Contact with your local Call Center:
