I really need some help please. I'm having problems connecting my xbox to my PC. The weird thing is, when I restart the router it sometimes does read the PC and I can stream. When I then turn the xbox off and back on, it fails to connect. I then have to restart the router again while the xbox is on - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I have Windows XP SP3 a BT Home Hub 2.0 router and connect to the xbox with a cat5 cable. I originally tried streaming via Windows Media Centre but I don't think my operating systems is compatbile as SP3 is not an option on the xbox/setup page and there is nowhere to enter the code the xbox gives me. Therefore, I've been streaming through Tversity. I only have 1 firewall runnung (windows), I've allowed all relevant exceptions and I've opened the suggested ports (it still worked before I did all this). It just doesnt make sense how it connects when I restart the router but not when I don't.
Re-setting my router every time is a pain and it doesn't even work every time. Any ideas?
