Windows 7: Windows 7 WMC and Xbox 360

Windows 7 WMC and Xbox 360

Hello SF I am a bit confused right now.

I use my laptop to get Wireless to my Xbox 360, I share my Wireless to my ethernet port and run a line from that to my Xbox 360 to gain internet access. Now lately I've also been using it that way to view videos on my Xbox 360, that are on my laptop.

Though whenever I turn off my 360, when I turn it back on its no longer able to connect to my laptops Windows Media Center.

Just gives me this;

Connection Failure
The Xbox 360 cannot connect to the Windows Media Center PC. Make sure the Windows Media Player PC is turned on and connected to the network. If you continue to see this error, check Media Center Extender Help on your Windows Media Center PC.
Now when it does that the only way to fix it is by uninstalling my Xbox 360 Extender thing, from my laptop through WMC, and reinstalling it.

Now this can be a bit annoying for me so I'm hoping for a fix, usually I'd say screw it and reinstall but it did this before my last reinstall (yesterday) and is still doing it.

Help is greatly appreciated. If any other information is needed, or you need me to clarify something just let me know.
