Can anyone recommend a reference site for home networking? I'm not an advanced user, but not a computer dummy either. I've got 2 PC's, two Xboxes, and a connected DVD. The 2 PC's connect to the internet via a wireless router. Each PC is sharing it's internet connection with an XBox via ethernet. I also have a DVD player that connects to one of the PC's wirelessly. I've come across 2 situations.
- I've had trouble connecting the DVD client wirelessly to the server PC through the router. I'm only able to connect on a peer to peer, directly to the server PC. Since this PC also uses it's wireless connection to access the internet; I have to go to my network props, and switch connections every time I want to use the DVD. Is it possible for the server PC to be connected to the internet and the DVD at the same time?
- Both Xboxes connect to Live and play fine at the same time. My roommate and I can send and receive messages to each other, but can not join in the same game together. Is this something that might be fixed by changing the NAT settings?
