I finally got it connected. I stumbled on to the info under media network in JRiver. I made some changes in the home network on my lap top first then, not sure if what I did in the home network had some bearing or not. It must have because I had been in Media Network numerous times. Then the info for the router ip showed up under overview with the ports listed so I put the ip and port info into JRemote and suddenly the activity log started filling in. Happy days. Now I can play and listen rather than pull my hair out. Good thing I don't have much left.
