Problem With conecting my new xbox 360 slim to my computer via media center.Advice needed?


Hi I wonder If any one can help me, I purchased the new xbox 360 slim with built in wifi yesterday. I have set it up and it is working fine and is conected to my wireless router & I can access xbox live and can play on line fine. But my problem is that I wanted to set up the media center extender function so I can stream stuff from my laptop to the xbox. I have tried several time and each time I go in to set up media center on the xbox it gives me a code. I then open up media center on my laptop and go in to the set up media extender option and enter code. Then I get a error message come up saying that my laptop & xbox are not conected to same network and so cant continue. Both my laptop & xbox 360 are 100% defernatly conected to same network. I only have one wireless network in my house. I have a second computer (a desktop computer) I tried again with this computer just to see if it was perhaps a problem with my Laptop. On my desktop it goes further and sets it up. But after setting up when my xbox 360 trys to conect to the desktop computer I get a error message come up on xbox saying network timed out can’t conect. What is the problem, What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it so I can get the media center extender function working on my xbox 360. Is it just me or is any one else having this problem. My laptop is running Windows 7 premium 64bit, My desktop is running Windows Vista 32bit. Any advice would be much appreciated

thanks in advance

  1. I’ve always found my XBox will not connect unless I’ve opened the Media Center on the computer first.

    Then I minimize it on the computer, but it MUST be opened on the computer for the XBox to find it.

    At least that has been my experience.
