Ok, after lurking and reading for hours I have solved some of my woes. I will do my best to describe the rest of them to you. What I am trying to do is reconnect my Xbox 360 to my PC. I had this working for three months(since I have had the 360), then, I had to do a clean install of Vista. Well, almost a clean install, I quess it is a re-install, because if left a lot of the stuff I already had, just cleaned out my email and such. Now, I can connect my 360, and the pc recognizes it when I am in WMP 11 and look at the media sharing. Here's the problem. I can either connect to Xbox Live or I can remove the network setting in the 360 and I can browse the files on my pc through the 360, but I can't do both like I could before. It's one or the other. I am using a Netopia 2240 dsl modem/router. I have not changed any settings in the router whatsoever. After I did a reinstall however, I could not access some SSL pages or recieve email( I could send ok, just not recieve). I fixed this by rolling back the driver for my Network card. The problem between the 360 and my pc existes only after the reinstall.
Heres something else, win I try and ping my router it times out. And, I cant access it through 192.168.1.1. When I use the cmd prompt and look at ip's, they are all static. Shouldn't I have dynamic? One last thing, when I click on my Broadband connection and click on details, next to dhcp, it says NO. However, on my LAN connection it says Yes???
PS- can someone tell me how to take a screen shot so I can post/better explain what I am doing.
Thanks so much for all the help.
