      Apple TV - Router config etc

      My powers seems to be weakening as I get older as I can't figure this one out - but it should be possible I think...

      I want a wired connection for my new ATV as the wireless in my house is flakey. I have my Sky ADSL router plugged into telephone master socket. This then feeds my Time Capsule AEBS via one of those ethernet over power thingys. This works very well. The TC then provides the wireless network.

      HOWEVER I now want to add the ATV and I want it with a wired connection rather than wireless. The easiest way of doing this is to plug it into the spare ethernet port on the router (as this is in the same room as the television I want to watch the ATV on).

      My problem is that although the ATV can "see" the internet successfully with this config, it cannot see the mac mini with iTunes etc. It can see the mac mini via wireless I'm happy that it should work in principle...

      I think I need to map ports (5353?) etc on either the router or the TC but my tinkering hasn't worked .

      Any ideas gratefully received....

      Thanks

      Solved by a helpful soul over on the Apple Community forums. Just needed to switch off the connection sharing option on the Time Capsule Base station and let the Sky router give out the addresses. Simple really....
