What is frustrating is 'nearby device connection settings' shows my PC'. It looks increasing likely i will not pursue this problem. Samsung should have a better system to intergrate PC's into Allshare Play
Further investigation of this problem has provided the following Getmac from command prompt shows the following
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Transport Address Transport Name
The X is to hide my mac address - unsure if necessary. 5.1.2600 refers to XP not Getmac version. The information provided by Getmac I expect is the same whatever version?. I have disabled the firewall, disconnected the router and connected via a USB Modem. The result after this effort is the same THE MAC ADDRESS IS NOT READ BY ALLSHARE
The solution to this problem might be altering NetbiosSmb etc but this has become too technical and beyond my capabilty. I am now resigned to fail this task. Pity i never like to give up. There must be others that have experienced this problem but where are they?
