Xbox 360 Connection Issues

My pc is not listed when I test connection on the 360. When I try to view a map via my laptop i get the message "windows cannot discover any computer or device." In homegroup my 360 is allowed, well all devices are allowed and I checked in services my windows network sharing or something like that is started. I cannot stream a thing!!!

make sure that all your ports are open on your router and also via your windows media player sharing options
what i found is that i had to set up Window Media Center to find myself stuff
if you don't have windows media center you can get a free ones

Open CONTROL PANEL and select WINDOWS FIREWALL.

In the 2nd TAB labelled EXCEPTIONS click the ADD PORT button to open up the following ports for Xbox Live (call them whatever you want).

TCP 80

UDP 3074
TCP 3074
UDP 53
