Do you want to get on Xbox Live? If so, connect it to a router or DSL/Cable Modem.

if u got the laptop hooked up straight to the xbox 360..you need to be using a special crossover cable not just any old network cable that probably came with your laptop or even the 360...

And once you are using a crossover cable..Just set it up so that the DNS for your computer is your Xbox IP and the Xbox DNS is the Computer IP..that's it..ip's gotta be a local network address so here's how you should set it up

Computer
IP: 192.168.0.1
DNS: 192.168.0.2

Xbox:
IP: 192.168.0.2
DNS: 192.168.0.1



That's it

otherwise if you got a router you just hook the laptop to the router, the xbox to the router, and you're all set.

You don't need media center, you just get more options when you have media center. Without media center you do have to install something on the computer but when you go thru the xbox 360 it tells you about that

You know, you can stream music and pictures even if you have WINDOWS XP. All you need is . WMC only works with Service Pack 2. That's how I play most of my music on the 360. I have the sh*t hooked up and I can stream all my albums. It's a beautiful thing.

OK...all I'm really tryin to do is get music off my comp onto my XBox (instead of ripping RETAIL/COPYRIGHTED CD's to the HDD). Anything else is just a plus.

Here's my problem...I'd be hooked up and ready to go, but I basically live in the basement and my HDTV is down here too. Thing is, I dont have any ethernet connections down here and my router is upstairs. Basically, I got nothin to connect it to beside my laptop.

DJ Phyber: I know how to wire CAT-5 cable, if I make a crossover cable, I'll be all set?

props for all who helped...ya'll the sh*t

Can you connect your PC to your Xbox through a router?



Or does the Xbox have to be directly connected to your PC?

If you plug a crossover from laptop to xbox you're good to go.

So yes just rewire it, since you know how it's easy i think you just switch around like 2 or 4 wires I did it a few times in the past and that's all you gotta do

Ayo phyber.

I ran the Media Software...and when it gets to the point to "Authorize" my Xbox 360...It says that it cannot be found.

It suggests that i make sure that my Xbox is plugges into my Home Network.




I am using a router. And while im doing all this, I am on Xbox Live.




Any ideas??? I tried the troubleshooting part of the xbox setup website...but there was no help.
