Problem with streaming from my laptop to my xbox 360 wirelessly

I have a laptop, desktop, and xbox 360. I have a d-link extereme n gigabit router model dir 655. My desktop is connected to my router and my laptop and 360 are wireless connected. I can get on xbox live just fine and i can connect wirelessly with my laptop just fine. i cannot stream videos from my laptop to my 360 wirelessly though. I have the latest version of windows media player and when i cannect my laptop to my 360 with a wired connection i am able to stream, just not wirelessly. when i go to my router control panel, it finds my laptop and desktop but not my 360 even though i am on xbox live and can play video games which i thought was strange. when i test media connection on my 360 it says pc selected has failed. I cannot get past this. any solutions would be awesome.

well, unless the D-link is also a modem/router, I don't see how ADDING the D-link router to a lagging network will reduce said lag. They probably wanted you to REPLACE the current router with that one.....

will "frontier service" allow that router to be set in a "modem-only" setting ? You'll have to get with them on that. as for the D-link, there are manuals as well as an Online Emulator that simulates the Router interface so you can see how to set it up....BEFORE you set it up !

[PS: tracking-down lag problems can be tricky....you should be experiencing bad lag with all sites for it to be your hardware....

If you do not have a router that you can plug directly into the back of the Xbox 360 then yes you will need to purchase a wireless router to sync up with your wireless router that you already have downstairs. You didn't specify if your broadband router had wireless capabilities? Does it? If not then you will need to buy a wireless router to be able to hook up your Xbox 360.

Microsoft has their own personal wireless router that fits on the back of the Xbox 360 nicely. I would recommend you purchase it due to ease of installation and compatability.

Here is a link to an example of what it looks like: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-n-networking-adapter/76045?ref=recpdp&cross=802124

And a cheaper older model: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-network-adapter/40678

And here is a link to Xbox step by step wirless hookup: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-live/get-started/connecting/wireless.aspx

If you are having specific issues then ask away and I can see what I can do to help you out. Try to be specific on what your current setup is and what problems you are having. thanks.

Having trouble connecting Xbox live. Have wireless router and wireless Xbox 360 adapter. Figured out where adapter goes. Now I'm stuck.


Is the router already setup and working? Do you have anything else that successfully connects to it "wirelessly", like a laptop or desktop or smartphone? If the answer is yes, here's how to setup the 360 to connect to your router:

1. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
2. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
3. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
4. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.
5. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option.
Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need: Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
