Help to connect a TV SONY to the network using a LAN port

Hi all,
my new TV Sony TV (KDL 46W4500) has a LAN port to connect the TV to the network. I tried to see whether it works and plugged the cable from my router to the TV. A message appear saying connection successful. However when I try to select home network server to be displayed on the Home menu of my TV, then I do not see any server. I also did run the server diagnostic, but nothing changed
I am wondering what is wrong - is there anything that I need to change on my computer (network settings?) or do I need to have a DLNA device as it says on the manual (text below)?
thanks a lot for your help and advices,


text from the SONY manual: with this TV, you can enjoy contents stored on DLNA-compatible devices on the home network.
Devices that store and provide contents, such as photo/music files, is called server. The TV receives those files from the server via the network.... To enjoy the home network, a DLNA- compatible device (VAIO, Cyber-shot, etc) is necessary as a server.
