Winodws Media Center.

I am trying to connect my windows media center to my xbox360 with the WMC Extender. It tell me the extender has been successfully set-up but failed to connect. I am connecting wirelessley through my home netwrok.

I also read that firewall can interfere so I disabled to see if it worked but it still didn't work. I have tried lots of tutorials from googling the subject but nothing seems to work. I am using Norton Internet Security 2010.

Any help would be much appreciated, (Also i would like not to use an ethernet cable if possible) thanks.

I'm sure you've tried this tutorial,

Just thought I'd post it till one of the network guru's see's your post.

Here's a troubleshooter too,

Instead of disabling Norton, uninstall it. See if things start working.
