ok so the issue im having is I have a windows 10 pc with all my media on it and I am looking to get that pc discoverable by my xbox 360, the issue is my xbox 360 is connected to a router which is then wired to another router (both Linksys)


xbox 360>router>router>windows 10 pc


im only asking here as im unsure how to navigate through 2 routers as one router goes by and the other router goes by so would this essentially be 2 networks?(everything is wired so wireless issues )


I have all my directories setup as shared on my windows 10 PC

If you don't get a response here, you may want to try the Networking forums located here:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/21/networking/

I don't have much skill at networking stuff myself, so I can't offer any significant help here.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

On the second router, change the IP address to be in the same range as the first (ie:, disable DHCP and connect the CAT5 cable from the first router to a LAN port on the second.
