Windows 7: Xbox 360 can't find my Laptop

Xbox 360 can't find my Laptop

Both my xbox 360 and laptop are connected wirelessly to the same network, my laptop can see my xbox and it is set to allow sharing through Windows Media Player.

Every time I go into movies or music on my xbox it will find other computers in my flat but not mine.

Any ideas? networking is not an area I've playe around with much as this issue only came up when I got a new laptop, never had the problem with my old one.

I'm running windows XP home edition

Check your firewall settings and make sure that Media Center Extender is checkmarked in the box.
