Network Setup Wizard

Is there an equivalent to XP's Network Setup Wizard in Windows 7 (64bit)?

Whenever I had trouble connecting my Xbox to my PC I would run this in XP and they would connect, in Win 7 I have trouble getting the 2 networked together.

I have mobile broadband and the PC connects to the 360 via ethernet cable, no router involved.

Please help

Hi and welcome

I suspect you are using 'homegroup' as your networking model. Homegroup sometimes has problems on mixed networks. Yiou can verify if this is your problem by simply creating a new network using the 'workgroup' model. If it works you can then kill IPv6 and homegroup



Good Luck

Thanks for that Ken, I changed it to workgroup and I'm able to stream with Tversity to the Xbox now. Still can't get the Xbox to use the PC's internet connection to connect though.

Should I disable ipv6? (not that I know what that is)

Thanks again
