Windows 7: Xbox and Unidentified Network problems.

Xbox and Unidentified Network problems.

So, today I went to watch a few films on my Cbox and it came up with a streaming error. I tried changing some Homegroup settings but it still wouldn't stream.

Now though, it says my xbox cant find my PC.

From the picture you can see that it says my Xbox isnt connected to the Internet... But wait! It is.
And because its an 'Unidentified Network' it means I can't change the type from Public to Private - This probably being the problem why I can't stream, as it was in Vista.

I ran a test on the Xbox and it can't locate my PC. I have no idea what is wrong with it now. Since getting windows 7 I've had nothing but network issues.

It appears my PC can find my Xbox, but my Xbox cant find the PC.
