Since I upgrade my WRT610n router to the latest firmware 1.00.03 B15 I am unable to see the apple tv as device in iTunes on any computer connected to the network (either wired or wireless). I have apple TV on a dedicated media network (N band only) and computers are on ethernet and G bands. If I put apple tv on the network with the computers, I can see it on devices connected to the same wireless network but NOT on the ethernet network. I have concluded that the latest firrmware broke the bounjour service, which is a multicast implementation. I have a ticket open with support regarding the issue. I asked support for a copy of the previous firmware (B10) and they could not provide me a copy.
Does anyone have a copy of the previous firmware they could give me an URL for or email it to me? I'd really appreciate any help as apple tv without iTunes is basically worthless! Thanks!

Hi - I tried going back to the v.10 of the Firmware... it helped for the first few days to keep the AppleTV connected to the iTunes, but after a few days same problem happened....
Also, looks like in general there are issues with the WRT610N and Apple... examples:
1) Have and Mac mini with iTunes running N wireless in the same room as the router, the AppleTV looses connection to iTunes
2) Have iMac in another room, loosed ability to print to network printer without uninstalling, and reinstalling the drivers and several reboots.... have a Linksys G router, if i connect to that, all works just fine...
Just seems, anytime an Apple is used with the 610N, there are problems - I am personnally going back to a G network, and worry about additional speed with they get it right next year or so...
