It seems that folks have trouble with the E3000 firewall interfering with the home sharing feature.  Try disabling the firewall and test.  I did not find any solutions in forums for this problem others are having as well (short of disabling the firewall that is).

Perhaps a firmware update would be helpful on the E3000 if one is available.....

Ae you trying to access iTunes locally or over the WAN or different subnet?  

Do you know if you are blocking broadcasts of any kind from the firewall?

Do you have a small network switch? If so connect your devices to it. Can you now see the Aple TV and iTunes?

If you ar on the same subnet, this should be working.

Install a cheap wireless router - set this up with your computer and appleTV on the same network - then plug this into your cisco.

Just a thought - you do have iTunes running on your computer?  This needs to be running all the time you share to the appleTV ...

Actually, if you are also using Wireless, you need to disable AP isolation.  This is a technique used to prevent clients in a public wifi space from seeing each other,

nice to see that I spent the time answering this, then someone else comes in and agrees with me and gets the points.. ..that should've been an assisted solution with my answer being the main one.  that is not going to be helpful for the next person to encounter the same problem if that link goes stale or the AP goes out of production.

Interesting.  I wonder how the author ultimately resolved the issue.  I am unfamiliar with the E3000, however a little digging and it seems to be a common problem.  So if a common problem and firmware update does not resolve then you are left with needing a workaround.  Adding another wireless router may have worked by adding the 2nd wireless router to a DMZ on the Cisco?  If I were the Author I would probably opt to just replace the Cisco with another product and then recreate firewall rules and call it a day.  I am not concerned with the points - please award them appropriately.
