Windows 7: Cant connect Boxee Box to W7 64 bit network

Cant connect Boxee Box to W7 64 bit network

Just a quick rant...why cant this be manageable?

I had to reinstall my W7 64 bit OS because my registry became unstable after a virus.

Now I cant reconnect my Boxee Box to my network. I dont remember where to begin, I had it correctly configured and have for a couple years and now the nightmare begins again.

I have my Boxee Box connected to my network through the ethernet to my Verizon router, so it is wired.
I accessed my router and tested the connection, its connected to the Boxee. "sees" it just fine.
I have left the Homegroup because I can remember that was a pivotal step.
I have everything that I can think of shared.

I still cant connect.
Where to begin?

Boxee works, WMC won't for music files
I'm trying to get WMC to recognize my AAC (Mostly Apple Lossless format) audio files, but having no luck. Boxee works great, but for some reason no luck in WMC. I've tried numerous codecs, workarounds, but no luck. I find it really odd that a small program like Boxee can make this work but WMC...
