Media sharing WMP11 networking.

Okay. i have two computers and an xbox 360 on my dlink dl-604 router. so my xbox does connect fine and it shares media with my other computer. (xp home) but my xp pro computer doesnt seem to be showing up in my xbox dashboard. now all my firewalls have been checked over. but ive come to think the upnp directory services in my windows has not been installed but yet ive ressearched and the xbox doesnt even run off these? says wikipedia. now my xbox was seeing my computer that i want to be sharing media with last week. but recently not. with the xbox live down i figured id focus on my home routing today.

Your settings on your PC may not be set to allow sharing to your 360. The way I do it, is I download windows media player 11, imported my itunes library and my movies I had on my PC and allowed sharing via media player. These steps can be seen in more detail by going to www.xbox.com/pcsetup

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.

Cannot share connection


The IP address that you have is an automatic IP address the Windows generates. It basically means your computer is not getting an IP address from the router (DHCP). You should try powering everything off. Then, in this order, power on your modem, wait 30 seconds, then, power on your router, wait 30 seconds, then power on your computers...This should fix the problem since one computer is working already.

CONNECT XBOX 360 TO COMPUTER


you are only sharing files with your pc to xbox, you cannot connect to the net throught the pc, the xbox has to have connection to a modem/router, or a router itself which is connected to modem.

....dead port?...........


Most likely dead port. Probably one of the metal connectors broke, or something internally will be not allowing it to connect or is fried.

Truth is there could be plenty of problems. Though judging with this, I would say its broken.

Can't stream media through xbox 360 using WMP11


I had the same problem in Windows XP and I just created a workgroup to share files on the network. Follow these steps if anyone is still having this problem. My gf has vista and must do it automatically but it's just a matter of remembering to establish a workgroup.

To summarize:
- Enable sharing on WMP 11 --> This should adjust windows firewall automatically but be sure to unblock ports for other firewalls, if need be.
- Create a workgroup --> Start...Control Panel....Network setup wizard.
Follow the steps, if you're connectnig through a router, select "this computer connects through a residentail gateway", apply this to any other computers that want to share files on this network, if necessary.
Restart computer to let the workgroup settings take effect and voila...your computer will now be detected.

Dlink Broadband Router Dl-604


You can connect many computers to a network with switches, (or hubs if you want an even cheaper option) but in order to connect to the internet there will need to be a router (or modem) to connect to your ISP.

anything else?

X box 360


You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.
