Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

Not close enough. All my gear is upstairs, I'm downstairs. So reaching a cable would be an expensive ordeal.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I'm having similar problems. But the real issue is yesterday, it was working perfectly. Today? not so much.

I spent three hours the other day trying to get this to work, i ended up having to restart my Homegroup. Well, that fixed it for a few days, but today i come home ready to stream some videos, and my pc is no where to be found by the xbox.

Any ideas? I've restarted the Internet Connection Sharing via. services.msc and still nothing. My wife's computer is working fine so the network is not the issue.

I'm sharing all folders and have wmp12 set to share as well. the Xbox360 is "allowed" as well and i can find no problems! HELP!!!
