Which is exactly why I highlighted the "VPN" connection in the screenshot. Teamviewer does "RemoteSupport", "Presentations", "File Transfer" and "VPN" connections.

Didn't you read my post?

One other reason for using a third party solution such as Teamviewer is that as we are talking about linking two private individuals it is likely that one or both parties will have a dynamic external IP address which would mean re-setting the VPN on regular basis.

This for instance is a non issue with Teamviewer

The issue with the ip address can be fixed via DDNS as well.

Yes - you could use another 3rd party solution

As far as Hamachi messing things up, it messed up my PS3 Media Server settings or something. Maybe somehow conflicting with Java or something, as that is the primary software driving it. (PS3MS)

I don't know how or why, as I am not skilled enough to diagnose stuff like this. All I know, is that as soon as I disconnected, then uninstalled Hamachi, my ability to use PS3 Media Server returned.

I am not sure if it created a different subnet or what, which caused conflict......dunno.

My other problem with Hamachi was that when I tried to uninstall it, it started copying files into my PC, and Spyware Docter started giving me warnings, and quarantining items.

While I haven't COMPLETELY given up on this, I have started to focus on MY own network as my roommate returned from camp, and since then, we have been having "discovery" issues between his Vista machine attached (wired cat5e) to a DAP-1522 AP/Bridge, and my PC that is wired cat5e to my DIR-655 router.

It worked when he left for camp, and now it won't. I might post another topic later today if I can't get it figured out.

Thanks for all suggestions though, as I will keep them all in mind for afterI figure my current issue out.

Thanks guys, although I was a little frustrated before, I am trying to take all your valuable info in.

My roommate and I have the same workgroup.....STR8UPMENACE

Here is the previous setup......Took a minute to setup. Original connection was made with the WPS "auto-connect" function on the DIR-655 and the DAP-1522. Worked awesome, full internet to everyone and all devices viewable, and sharing worked PC to PC as well as all PS3 Media Server functions. Cross shared folders were visible from his PC to my PS3 media server.
My PC folders were visible to HIS PS3 media server.
This setup allowed GB connections between his PC<---->his PS3.
And allowed GB connection between my PC<----->my PS3.
Amanda-PC just tagged along as a WiFi connection, but visible, even though her workgroup name was/is WORKGROUP. Amanda-PC had no media servers or such just a browsing machine with Public folder shares, strictly a YouTube portal for her.

Here is a self made diagram of what is going on now......


Proper exact address syntax?-current-divided.png


The basic layout of the network has not changed. There is still only one internet connection.
I just layed it out as such so that you could see that now it is as if UPSTAIRS and DOWNSTAIRS are totally seperate.

I have FULL internet connection right now DOWNSTAIRS. Full GB PS3 media server function DOWNSTAIRS.

Roommate has internet UPSTAIRS on PS3 and PC. As well his PS3 media server on his Vista machine has a GB connection to his PS3.

Amanda-PC is still visible now, but only to my Win7-PC, and not the upstairs setup.

It's as if two different sub-nets now.


The problem is, I have factory reset all devices in the hopes to get back to square one, and tried following the same steps with the "WPS connect" function of the D-Link router and bridge, but I just cannot get the same setup we had before.

I always have full internet on both my devices and full GB media serving downstairs.
My room mate currently has full internet on both his devices, and full GB media serving PC<--->PS3upstairs.

We just can't share PC to PC. We have to use USB jump drives to share media PC to PC (guerilla style ). The connection (DIR-655 router to DAP-1522 bridge/access point) is OBVIOUSLY there, or he would have no internet at all as he is "standalone" upstairs and there is only one DSL modem/internet connection (downstairs in my room).

I have tried every method suggested in the DAP-1522 bridge manual, to no avail. Now confusion has set in.

Anyways, that is where I am at right now, and why I have put my VPN quest on hold.

Thanks for advice you have given, as well as any you may have for me now.

I know you stated both on work network. Will have to try that here after my room-mate wakes up in a few hours.

I hope my slap together mapping doesn's confuse you. Network mapping is not functioning well now, so I had to take snips of various icons and slap it together. Not totally efficient with Paint yet.
