Re: [OOL] Streaming to Xbox from PC over OOL Wireless Network -

I'll be busy until later today(after 6pm). At that point I will try and help if no one comes along before then. Until then you can try a couple of things,

If you have not, in media center go into settings and click add extender. See if that helps to set it up.

If that does not work, check the IP of the Xbox and try pinging it from the computer.

The router should have very little to do with the connection between your computer and xbox. The router is actually a router and switch combined, and "most" routers do not do anything that inhibits connections between two devices on your LAN. Any security is usually between the LAN and internet, though some also have some security/isolation between the wired and wireless LAN.

But since both your devices are wired, it is unlikely the router is blocking anything. It certainly seems like a firewall on the computer, but it seems odd that eveything worked when you have a router from Verizon FiOS, and changing the router to the one from Optimum stopped them from working.

If I understand, both the xbox and computer are wired to the router.
Both the xbox and computer can get to the internet.

As wiseguy suggested, see if you can "ping" the xbox from the computer.

I did try adding the extender in media center, which is how I know my computer can't find my xbox. I had like 12 different codes from trying so much, it never once detected it.

I will try to ping the box when I get home in an hour or so.

Don't think I've said it yet but I really do appreciate all the help trying to fix this frustrating issue!

When I had verizon, the modem and router were one device, now its 2 devices and its dhcp which I didn't use on verizon, so I'm not sure if that's messing it up, or causing a communication problem, or what, but its incredibly frustrating when suddenly you can't do something you could so easily do before.

I'm trying to remember what ip showed up on my xbox last night, I'm worried it may be the routers ip address, which I think is probably not supposed to be what shows up.

If you didn't use the Verizon router's DHCP server, then how did you assign IP addresses? Statically? If so, you should set everything back to DHCP.

BTW, Verizon's box is just a router - not a modem/router

Try going into the router and turning on UPnP.

Then you were using DHCP with Verizon, too.

Check the IP address, gateway and subnet mask of both your PC and Xbox and post there results here. Maybe there's a clue there.

But I'm guessing it's an issue with a firewall (some don't turn completely off unless you uninstall them).

So your xbox is connected over wireless and wired? Try to disable wireless.

Also, the DNS server is probably wrong, unless you mistyped it. Unless you're running your own DNS server at 192.168.1.11, it should be 192.168.1.1.

the xbox has wireless capability, but its currently wired. When I couldn't get it to work wirelessly I tried wiring it, had the same problem. I'll try putting the numbers manually into the xbox and see if that fixes it, its telling me 192.168.1.11

Try turning wireless off on your computer - it's not necessary if you have it wired and could be causing issues.

7C:ED:8D:42:B3:0C is your xbox's wireless adapter. So I guess wireless is not disabled? It's showing no IP address - did you set it statically? Set it to DHCP.

2C:76:8A:0B:82:6E is your printer.

--------------------------------------------
for the xbox
..
..

Ethernet wired ipv4 address is 192.168.1.2

Both addresses are the same. That will not work.
Go into the XBox and assign a static IP of something like 192.168.1.95

Well you said you've wired your XBox to the router and it's not showing up in wired devices, so you're on to something.

Disable wireless completely on your XBox and your computer. Is your router dual band? It's possible that your computer is connected wirelessly on 5GHz which sometimes leads to problems connecting to wired devices or devices on 2.4GHz. Just a possibility.

ok so I tried to further disable wireless on my xbox, only it wouldn't let me do more than was already done, so I disconnected the ethernet cable from the box and my pc and tried doing it wirelessly. I changed the ip to 192.168.1.95
nothing works, still the same result they can't find each other

Why are you changing IPs manually at all? Set everything to DHCP and let the router handle it. Then check the attached device list again and make sure everything is showing up properly.

If other devices on your network also have static IP addresses set, you should switch them to DHCP as well - in case the DHCP server tries to assign an address you've already assigned statically.

When you configure your devices.

On the Xbox network setup, there should be an option for "Automatic" or Manual, you want automatic.

On your PC, in Network settings you want it to use Automatic / DHCP (not sure of the exact wording in Windows 7).

Thanks everyone for the help trying to fix this. I finally got it working. I wish I'd found this post earlier, but I'll link it here in case anyone else comes up with the same problem.

Your attached devices list looks correct now.

Can you post the output (take a screen shot or copy/paste the text) from these commands on your PC (obviously with your Xbox turned on):

ping -n 5 192.168.1.1
ping -n 5 192.168.1.11

To open a command prompt, if you don't know, press Windows+R, type cmd and hit enter.

At this point, with both on wireless, it could be a problem with AP isolation as pointed out earlier. Some routers have settings so wireless devices cannot connect to each other, or across different bands (2.4 and 5GHz bands).
