    also, if its on your router, what port is it in? make sure its not in the "modem"/"to internet" port, and even then, give another port a try

    You did connect your xbox to your router, and not directly, correct?

If u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3

When i start the laptop it shows media test failure,check cable exiting pxe rom os not found


Your computer is configured to try to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy-disk
* CD/DVD drive
* disk-drive
* network (via connecting to a "boot-server" on your local network)

So, "media test failure" means that no Ethernet cable is connected to the network-port on the computer. So, if you are trying to boot from a "boot-server" over the network, check that the Ethernet cable is connected, and check that the boot-server is processing boot-requests.

Thus, the PXE (Pre eXecution Environment) is exiting, because it cannot boot from the network -- no Operating System was accessible over the network.

So, enter BIOS SETUP, and disable the "network boot" option,
if no boot-server exists.

Also, put a boot-disk into the floppy-drive, or the CD/DVD drive,
or, most importantly, check that your disk-drive is working.

If your disk-drive is not getting power, or its "data" cable is not connected, or if the disk-drive has a problem, then Windows cannot be read from the disk, and so the computer tries an "alternate" boot-device.

When I turn on the Mini laptop, what does this mean: Realtex RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.08 PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE -M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating System not...


media test failure like above while
booting means that the problem already solved as long as you can get
into Vista/win7/xp as usual. PXE shown in the massage is
the Ethernet network boot option which you’re not using. There are 4 options you can use for boot up the laptop:
1. Network
2. DVD/CD
3. USB Storage
4. HDD

That was better to use HDD unless you are connected to a LAN then you need to change it to Network

Cannot connect laptop with the eithernet cord


If you cannot connect your laptop using an Ethernet cable, make sure the laptop's wireless ethernet is disabled. To disable it in window xp, click the Start button and open the Control Panel. Double-click Network Connections. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and select Disable from the drop-down list.

04e3ee0.png If you are using a laptop with Windows Vista, click the Start Button and type Network and Sharing into the Start Search box. Select Network and Sharing Center from the Programs list. Select Manage Network Connections from the left pane of the window. The Network Connections window will open. Click on Wireless Network Connection. Select Disable this Network Device at the top of the window.

9a7c8c6.png Troubleshoot the Network
After disabling the laptop's wireless connection, be sure to restart the computer before trying to connect with the Ethernet cable again. If you still cannot connect the laptop to the network with an Ethernet cable after rebooting, check to make sure there is not a problem with the network itself. If there are others nearby connected to the same network, such as in your office, dorm or another public location, ask them whether they are currently able to connect to the network. If no one else is using the network, contact the system administrator or your Internet service provider to see if there may be an outage. This step can save you plenty of time troubleshooting if there is an outage in your area!
Troubleshoot the Ethernet Cable
If there is no problem with the network itself, the reason that you cannot connect the laptop may be the ethernet cable. Make sure that the Ethernet Cable is securely connected to both the laptop and the wall outlet. If possible, try connecting the Ethernet cable into another wall jack or port on the router, and then try using a different Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable you are using may be damaged.


8686681.png Troubleshoot Network Settings
If the Ethernet cable does not seem to be the reason why you cannot connect to the network, check the laptop's network settings. In Windows XP, open the Control Panel and select Network Connections. Open Local Area Connection and check the status of the connection.
In Windows Vista, go to the Network and Sharing Center and select Diagnose and Repair from the left pane and wait for the results.


If the Local Area Connection is listed as Disabled, right-click it and choose Enable.
If it says that the network adapter is unplugged and you have ruled out a problem with the Ethernet cable and port, the laptop's network adapter may have failed. Try using the same Ethernet cable on another computer. If you are able to connect to the network on another computer using the same Ethernet cord, contact the laptop's manufacturer, a computer repair technician or replace the network adapter yourself.

Ethernet on DELL 4550 with TP-link doesn't work


Hi there,

pinging 127.0.0.1 just tells you that your network card is operational and reacheable by your system.

I have a couple of suggestions - check them out and let me know what you found out.

  • Go to Network Connections / Local Area Connection / General Tab / Properties / Internet Protocol (TCPIP) (from the list)/ Properties. Are all settings set to "Obtain automatacally..."?
  • Is your operating system Windows XP Home or Professional (with Service Pack 2 installed)?
  • Have you installed the AirPort Utility software that came on the CD? (Check Start > All Programs > AirPort)
  • You have to have the software installed in order to setup the router.
  • What is your internet connection: Cable or DSL?
  • Take a look at this document "Designing AirPort Networks" which is also on the CD that came with the device. If you don't have it, here is the download (link). Go to page 25 and follow the instructions for PPPoE (if you have DSL service) or DHCP (if you have cable service).

Let me know how that works for you and if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to look further into that if this did not work for you.

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