Networking an Alcatel Lucent 7130 with a D-Link Dir-655 router
I recently installed Bell's IPTV which uses the Alcatel Lucent 7130 router. It has four ethernet ports and one cable port. The cables in my house were old and did not carry HD signals but fortunately I had double ethernet connections in two of the three tv locations. One is connected directly to the 7130 and the other to my home network on the 655. At the third location I put a small bridge and connect it to the Bell box and my HTPC. Unfortunately my 655 cannot see the HTPC so I am unable to transfer files around my home network to it. I changed the 655 to a bridge and use the 7130 as the modem to the internet and that all works fine but I need to have that HTPC on my network and have tried a powerline ethernet connection which works but is slow and unreliable, I also installed a wireless card that is even less reliable. I have about a dozen devices including computers, security cameras, blu-ray dvd players etc on the network. How do i see that HTPC from my d-Link Dir-655 and hence the rest of my network?
