Streaming over two subnets


Standard Member

Previously I was streaming media between my NAS mediaserver and PS3 over 802.11g, which had poor speeds and made my HD-movies impossible to stream.

I have recently bought a dlink router (dir-655) and AP (dap-1522) to enhance my throughput between my NAS mediaserver and PS3.
This solution is based on making a dedicated 802.11n network for the streaming. As my DSL modem only got 802.11g I need to add a router with n-capability (dlink dir-655). On the other side, dap-1522 is connected to the PS3 with cable and acts as a bridge.

All worked wonders before, but now I have introduced another subnet which makes it problematic to get dlna/upnp to work.

My setup is as described in the attachment.

Some background information before you analyze the issue:

- "everything" (internet connection, ping from and to other hosts on both the 20.0.0.x and 10.0.0.x subnets, etc) on the ps3 works apart from connecting to the NAS mediaserver
- I believe there are some problems with multicast-support, though both my DSL router and dlink router (dir-655) have enabled multicast.
- upnp is enabled on both routers
- there are no port-forwarding on either of the routers, apart from some ports to my NAS for makin internet hosts see my apache website hosted by the NAS.

The challenge is therefore:
- how to make the upnp-broadcasts from my NAS server on subnet 10.0.0.x to reach my ps3 on subnet 20.0.0.x and vica-versa?

Any tip on how to solve this issue will be greatly appreciated!!
