I have a Linksys E2500 router, an Xbox 360S, and a Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7. When I try to use the Xbox as a media extender for the laptop, it fails when I go through the router with the following error:
When I connect the laptop directly to the Xbox, they can find each other fine and I can stream video, but obviously this is not the solution, just a troubleshooting step.
I've tried various things suggested for Linksys routers: disabling UPnP, unchecking Filter Anonymous Internet Requests, but it doesn't seem to work. To make matters even more fun it seems the E2500 is new enough there's not a lot specifically out there. There is plenty for older Linksys routers but the suggestions don't seem to solve my problems.
Is there anyone out there with an E2500 who knows the proper settings to get my laptop to recognize my 360 as an extender, or has some good guesses?
Do the static IP and port forwarding suggestions have an effect on this? Or it's just for online game play?
UPDATE: I've noticed that it WILL find the extender if the laptop uses a physical connection to the E2500 router, but it can NOT find it if the laptop is connecting wirelessly.
