Just got a new router (Medialink, replacing Linksys). Got desktop, laptop, printer, and iPod Touch connected with no problem. My Squeezebox Boom connects to the network just fine but will not connect to Logitech Media Server (v. 7.7.1) runnng on the desktop computer (which has Vista as an OS). I've tried power cycling both Boom and computer, restarting the router, flushing the Squeezebox cache on the computer, resetting to factory settings on the Boom. No help. I can get to mysqueezebox.com on the Boom, so it's connected to the network and the Internet OK. I've tried fiddling with every setting I can find on the router, typing the IP address of the Logitech server in manually, stopping my antivirus, plugging the Boom directly into the router via Ethernet cable. No help.
I also have an older version of Squeezebox Server (7.6.1) on my laptop (Windows 7, with same antivirus program as desktop), with a separate music library on a USB drive plugged into the laptop. Turns out the Boom *can* connect to the server on the *laptop* and play just fine. Which is nice, but I really want to get it connected to the server on my desktop so I don't have to have the laptop running to use the Boom.
Should I try to find an older version of Squeezebox Server to install on the desktop? Except for the different versions of Squeezebox/Logitech servers and the different Windows OS's, I don't know what else is different between the two machines that could cause this problem.
Added note: Boom was working fine with server on desktop yesterday on old router.

Boom: can connect to one computer/server, not another
