My xbox 360 cant get a valid ip adress from my router to ad an extender to share media with my pc.And my internet connection is fine.

You dont need an internet connection to add an extender, but also if you are doing the xbox live network test, make sure you turn on INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING otherwise you will not connect,run a pc - xbox , then media connection test, etc, also make sure you have the media centre open on your computer also. Good Luck.

Can not connect xbox to vista basic laptop (using an ethernet cable to connect console to pc) (pc is on wireless internet), have set media sharing on in Windows Media Player. Vista Basic does noy have Media Center

If it doesnt have media center, just right click and share any folders you want to stream through your xbox.

Also might be useful to open file and media sharing in network settings.
