I am on a wireless network using a Cisco E4200.  Homesharing is not working.  I have signed into both devices using the same itunes username and password, and homesharing appears briefly when i activate/deactivate, but then disappears as soon as I hit ok after setting up.

Any ideas why this is no longer working?  Im on Itunes 10.6.3,25 on both PCs.

I had a previous router (Belkin Share) that didn't work well with the Bonjour networking protocol that most networked Apple software uses. As a result, features such as iTunes Home Sharing didn't work. It may be worthwhile investigating if your problem is due to a similar cause.

I updated to the latest version of itunes and it seems to have fixed it now.
