Network Problem with 2 xboxes

I have troubles with using my XBOX as mediacenter with my Windows 7 PC. With Windows XP it was easy for me to set op the medianetwork. I experienced the helpers here are the best, therefore I came here for help

In my network at home I have 1 modem, 1 router, 1 PC (this one), 2 xboxes (old ones). My PC is connected wireless to the router and XBOX 2 is connected wired (crosslink) to my PC. This is because my mum put me and my computer at the attic when we started to live here . I have no network cable acces in the attic. I made a scheme:

Since I can't add Pictures here, I refer to this picture I made.

The problem:
On my PC I have some really neat movies and stuff, which I want to play on my XBOXes in my room and downstairs with the TV. On both XBOXes is XBMC (Xbox MediaCenter) Installed. 2 years ago I made a wired setup in another home with a XP computer. Now I am dealing with a wireless connection, new router, new PC with windows 7. I can't get things configured correctly.

So now you know what I want and now I will outline what I already know.

The router's settings are:
LAN IP
IP Address : 192.168.0.99
IP Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
DHCP Server
Start IP : 192.168.0.100
End IP : 192.168.0.200

The PC settings are:
Wireless LAN-adapter voor Wireless Connection:
Beschrijving. . . . . . . . . . . : U.S. Robotics Wireless 802.11g PCI
DHCP ingeschakeld . . . . . . . . : ja
IPv4-adres. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.101(voorkeur)
Subnetmasker. . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Standaardgateway. . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.99
DHCP-server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.99

Ethernet-adapter voor LAN-verbinding:
Beschrijving. . . . . . . . . . . : Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E
IPv4-adres. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.3(voorkeur)
Subnetmasker. . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Standaardgateway. . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.0

The XBOX 1 settings (wired directly to router):
IP Address : 192.168.0.154
IP Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Standard Gateway: 192.168.0.99

The XBOX 2 settings (wired direct to PC via Crosslink):
IP Address : 192.168.1.0
IP Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Standard Gateway: 192.168.0.1

The XBOX (2) in my room sees my PC and does try to connect it. It asks for username and password. My Windows 7 account I have installed is name e.g. username=Niels password=12121986. I enter these details, I see the xbox thinking, but then I get the prompted message: Geef gebruikersnaam voor smb://POWERPC/. This means: Give username for smb://POWERPC/. I don't get it!!! I just did you stupid machine ! But O.K. so far for the xbox at my room.

The XBOX (1) which is connected via the router and is happy to be in the living room does see my PC, but says: can't find WORKGROUP. But if i select: auto-discover uPnP-servers, it says: "Hi, there is PowerPC".
