I wasted a bunch of time trying to get this to work, and figured this group could give me some much needed help.
I have WMC 2005 with rollup 2 installed. I ran the extender update on it and it shows that it detects the Xbox. I entered the code, and it syncs. I ran media connection, and it show the xbox as an extender, I refreshed the firewall.
When I try to connect the xbox 360, and detects the pc and tries to connect. It times out after 2 min and tries again. Eventually, I get an error on the xbox that another application canceled the session.
So now I am thinking that it might be my firewall. I dissable Norton internet security for a few min and try again- same hang. I made sure windows firewall was also disabled...
Next I ran the connection test on the PC- said connection was good. Good enough for HD streaming in fact....
Next I ran the network test on the xbox. Everything went fine- except that for the NAT it said moderate. Now I am over my head- no real idea what NAT is. I went into my Belkin router settings, and see NAT turned on. I experimented with turning this off- lost ip's and all hell breaks loose on network. I reset the Belkin router to the default settings.
To problem solve, I uninstalled Nortons Internet security 2005 and made sure the Windows firewall was also off- same hang, no dice.
I was able to connect with my origional xbox with the extender software, so not sure what is wrong. I can download and connect to xbox live on the 360 fine- just no media center, which is a main reason for my purchase- to stream HD from PC to tv.
I have searched the MS groups, and your typical google search. I have also searched the Belkin help boards, but I am guessing no new help will show up this week, as the xbox360 is so new.
Are there any specific ports that need to be open? At one point I did find a help doc that poped up on the PC, listing specific ports that needed to be open- but I could not find these again- anyone have a link?
Any Belkin router users have connected- and help guides?
Sorry for so many questions. I am just hoping for a easy solution that I am just missing. Thanks to anyone taking the time to read this, and a bigger thank you for any help.
