Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Can't get Xbox Console to see my pc

Am running winxp sp2, got an approved wired router, plugged pc and xbox to router, router to modem, both can see the internet, windows media player 11 sees the xbox, xbox WILL NOT recognize that the computer is there, have checked firewall ports, all open, tested by turning off firewall even. IP addresses are different, seem alright, Called Microsofts worthless tech support, no help, always hang up on me after they go through the basic ideas, my network cables are about 25 ft long, as modem is in one room and puter and xbox in another, just at wits end, everytime xbox tests connection, says it can't connect, has given me an error status code if I dig for it, w: 0000-000b  x 0000-f001 y: 0000-0000 z: 8000-4005 does this mean anything to anyone? any ideas?

THE pc OS is by default configured to NOT share files or folders
xbox will only see shared drives/folder on the pc,
if nothing is shared nothing is accessible.
On the pc
mark a folder as shareable and see whether it becomes available to the xbox

Connecting my xbox to internet with utstarcom um100c modem on pc


You are not going to like the answer I have for you. Forget connecting wireless with X-box. Purchase a router with an Ethernet port. I do this for a living and run in to this problem all the time. Trust me, hard wire with X-box is the way to go. A Lynksys router is a good router and is also VERY user friendly.

Media sharing WMP11 networking.


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

Router to connect or sub the speedstream 5100


Option 1 (easy)
you could buy a switch or router and put in line with your modem.
you will have to set up appropriate networking on the xbox
DSL --> MODEM --> SWITCH <-- PC
^---- XBOX

Option 2 (harder)
you could get a wired/wireless AP (Access Point) for your PC and run ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) through Windows. connect the XBOX through your PC

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.

Salutations LHmom,

Because your using laptop computers and a mobile carrier for your internet services this will be a little harder then normal but not imposable.

First what you would need is a ethernet switch or hub. This should allow you use the laptop with the Verizon card as a "Gateway". You would then connect the Xbox 360 to the hub and it would share the internet from the laptop.

Windows XP, and Vista have nice networking wizards that can walk you through the settings. But be aware you may need to change the settings back when you are not using the Xbox 360.

Hope this helps.
Jon
