comment What is the best way to organise media sharing amongst multiple devices on a home network?
Cool, good point about the Windows 2000 machine. I'll probably decommission it once the NAS is in place, since it is only 230GB. So with the media being on the NAS, how would the Windows machines access the media. Would this be done via file shares, or through DLNA/UPnP? I'm currently using WMP with file share from the W2k box. Also, any idea about how the iPhone would see the media?

I'll try a different router with it. I've ordered an Asus RT-N56U. I'll see if it makes a difference.

The Vista laptop and the iPhones are connected over WiFi. The machines joined to the domain are connected physically or are a virtual machine.

I can't ping the iPhones by IP address or name from any Windows machine that is part of the domain. I can ping it by IP address from the router, and from a Windows Vista laptop that is not joined to the domain.

Pinging by IP address.

A bit of further snooping reveals that any DHCP allocated IP machine (including Windows workstations) can't be resolved with nslookup. My Windows 7 workstation does have an entry in the forward lookup zone, but not the reverse lookup zone. The iPhones have an entry in neither.
