XboX 360 & Windows Media Center?
 
Guys i need a little help here please ...

I had my xbox 360 linked to my wireless router all fine and dandy for ages, I had a modem and a separate wireless router, Now ive just got me a home hub(upgraded to 30MB) .. A modem and wireless router all in one.

Problem: I can connect to the router with the xbox and connect to my xbox live account etc .. I just cant seem to get the xbox 360 to pair with windows media center now?

Anybody got any advice or info on what i could try to get it working again? ..

Is there something better to use than windows media center?

The first thing to check is that your xbox can see the media center machine and vice versa, it seems quite a few of ISP provided modem+routers don't bridge the wifi to the lan. You may have to call your ISP to find out how to get that to go.

you probably had wireless in isolation mode (devices on the wireless cannot access the wired network, just the up-link).
Glad it was resolved.

Hey Atojar, i too have experienced the same problem with the Virgin Super hub. I also had problems with the wireless connected computer and laptop with the Homegroup (all runnin win7). I tried many things to resolve the issues but failed, Xbox360 could not see the windows media PC and the laptop and other desktop PC couldn't find each other on homegroups. I have since connected my old router to the super hub (virgin media took my old modem) and now run the super hub in modem only mode, something which could only be done with the latest R30 firmware update that was released this month. Now both Xbox and other PC and laptop can connect fine and homegroup ok too.

Virgin super hub sucks balls !!!

Did they tell you to disable a few of the firewall features ?

Heres exactly what they told me to do ...

In in hub go to Content Filtering > Services ... Make sure there are no boxes ticked under this tab.

2nd, Under the Setup tab find Wireless Settings, Set the channel to 11, Mode Up to 145Mbps & then band to 2.4GHz.

After i done all of this it worked. :)

But yeah, The Firewall Features are disabled in the hub. :thumbdwn:
