Connecting 360 to PC


Standard Member
Help, it's driving me mad !

If I connect my Windows 7 laptop with an ethernet cable direct to my 360, the 360 see's the PC and I can stream files OK (although media center extender won't set up correctly - it fails on last tick box in Windows).

However when I go back to a wireless connection between PC and router and ethernet cable between the 360 and router, they cannot find each other at all - I have disabled firewalls, etc - still no joy. Pointing to some issue or setting on the router.

I've read up that some routers can't stream with 360 connected by ethernet ? I have a Zoom X6 router.

If this is so does anyone know how to get it working or as a last resort a router that definately does work in the configuration ?

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:
