Re: How to set up Windows Media Center extender in windows 7?

You can connect your Media Center Extender to your home network using an Ethernet cable. This type of connection is called a wired network, and it's recommended over a wireless connection because it's generally faster and more reliable. For more information about setting up a home network and the pros and cons of the different types of network connections, see What you need to set up a home network.
  • Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into an Ethernet port on your router, hub, or switch.
  • Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your Extender.
  • Plug the power cord of the Extender in.
  • Make sure the network activity light for the Ethernet cable that is plugged into the Extender is on.
