I did try searching for my situation but no luck so here goes:
I have one of the recent Advanced Wi Fi modems from rogers (I forget the model #).
I also have a DLink router.
Using all of the same cables and equipment, if I plug my PC and my Xbox into my Dlink router, my Xbox is able to see my pc and can play videos from it.
If I take those same cables and move them over to the Rogers modem, the Xbox cannot see the PC at all.
So there's obviously a setting on the Rogers modem that I need to change, but I can't seem to figure out which one it is. I tried calling Rogers but I'm not entirely sure they understood what I was trying to do, and the tech's solution seemed to have me doing nothing except unplugging and plugging in the cable modem over and over.
I should mention that when the xbox and PC are connected to the Rogers modem, everything else works perfectly. The only thing I can't get it to do, is let the Xbox and PC talk to each other. I have verified that they are both on the same IP range, same subnet etc...
Anyone know the solution to this by chance?
No. I actually don't use or even have my Dlink router connected to my Rogers modem at all.
I just dug it out to test it.
If I plug them both into the Dlink, the Xbox says "hey there's your pc, lets watch a video!"
If I unplug them both from the Dlink, and plug them both into the Rogers modem, the Xbox says "hey I don't see any pc's here but if you have a usb stick we can watch a video!"
I'm sure there's a setting on the Rogers modem, my guess is something to do with Network Discovery, but I can't find it 😞
What IP are your computer and xbox assigned when plugged directly into the Rogers modem? this will give us an idea if your being assigned a private or public address on them and thus deduce if your modem is in Bridge or Gateway mode. Do they start with 192.168.X.X or something else?
