    Why is my brother having trouble playing my games while we are game shearing

    Hi brandon!

    Thanks for reaching Microsoft Community. We're here to help and let's work on this together.

    There could be several reasons why your brother is having trouble playing your games while game sharing. Here are some possible solutions:



    1. Make sure that your Xbox Live Gold subscription is active and that both accounts are signed in to Xbox Live.



    2. Check that your Xbox is set as your home Xbox. To do this, go to Settings > Personalization > My home Xbox and make sure that your Xbox is set as your home Xbox.



    3. Ensure that the games you are trying to share are compatible with game sharing. Not all games are eligible for game sharing, so check the game's product page on the Microsoft Store to see if it supports game sharing.



    4. If your brother is having trouble accessing your games, try resetting your Xbox and signing in again.



    5. If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact Xbox Support for further assistance.

    Please let us know how it goes.



    Greetings,

    RodelioP.

    Two Xbox's on one router?

    Well, on my network, I have my Xbox 360, my PC, my brother's PC, my mother's PC, & a back-up drive. We all leave our PCs on. Often times my brother's watching HD movies on his PC while I play my games. It's when he tries to upload files that it kills my
    connection. My mother rarely uses her PC & I don't use mine while playing games...

    Home Xbox and Game Sharing with a Disc

    No issue! I game share with my brothers, and when I am on my own Xbox, I can play the same game that they're playing, even without having two copies. Part of why my family's Xbox is set as my home console is so we can do that.

    My home xbox

    Me and my brother are game sharing but i cant play the games he bought online why is this?
    In order to share his games he would need to set his account as Home on the console you're playing on or you would need to have his account signed in while you play.
