My setup is as follows:
- A modem
- High speed wireless router (Belkin)
- Apple TV
The modem feeds the router and the router is connected to the Apple TV. Now when I connect the Apple TV to the router via Wi-Fi everything is good and all my Apple devices recognize the presence of the Apple TV. The strange thing is if I connect the Apple TV to the router via an Ethernet cable (my thinking being to reduce the load on the router, and get smoother AirPlay), none of the devices connected to the same router recognize that the Apple TV is live.
My iPhone, iPad, and MacBook are all connected to the Belkin router via Wi-Fi.
Any thoughts on why this is happening?
