The status page is properly accessible from where? A x86 computer that's on your wired network? or from a device connected to network via wireless?
MiniDLNA publishes automatically a web page on port 8200 for checking its status.
My computer is an old x64-capable server. It is connected to my network through a wireless USB adapter.
this computer is the one you successfully accessed the minidlna web page from? or a different computer connected via ethernet? i'm just trying to verify that you have successfully accessed the webpage for minidlna from a wireless device/computer.
if yes, then you could use nmap or a nmap gui (nmap-qt4 ?) to scan the host that is supposed to be serving minidlna and make sure that port is actually open/visible. IOW, just start ruling things out. If that port is open/accessible from a remote machine then try different apps on the clients to make sure it's not just buggy clients. you might also try different minidlna servers. i know when i tried to use minidlna the servers and client apps were very picky and some were very flakey too. i ended up ditching minidlna(even though i had it working most of the time) and just using samba just because i didn't like how non-robust it all was.
