Windows 7: Win 7 REFUSES to allow Networking with my XBOX360 .....

Welp I just disabled every firewall I had on my machine and you know what that did? Nothing? I mean seriously, I am an average user, and I can't get something this simple to work, unacceptable, this is in no way my fault and I guarantee the average user has major issues as well. My computer sees the xbox, the xbox sees the computer but I cannot access any files for more then a few seconds. This is maddening, XBOX360 cannot talk to a windows computer, pathetic.


Help.

I wish I could help. I have the post just above yours. I have an internet radio that's "seen" by Windows, is registered and "allowed" but the radio can't "see" my Win 7 Network so I'm stuck too! Good luck in getting this resolved!

Still having issues, works one second, dies the next, no reason why.

i THINK it may have to do with the computer, it can't be doing anything, god forbid you try any multitasking in this day and age. Just a crappy OS I believe, just crap.

OS Is Fine

The OS is fine remember new OS old hardware has always been a problem if you get a new OS get new hardware designed to work with said OS....not to say you can't get older hardware to work yes you can for the most part but I find people would try to use the same hardware through every new OS and only buy new hardware when forced to.

If this really was an OS issue everyone would suffer from the same issue and that's just not the case and in a lot of cases doing things like upgrading your existing OS to a newer version is always a disaster it just should not be done period....and a lot of people I see here are truly confused as to what a clean install is.

I am sorry you are having problems and everyone here will try to help so just be patient... answers to computer problems can be hard to come up with sometimes due to all the variables involved.

Plugged straight in, oh the computer sees it. Then it just refuses to recognise. If I shut off my computer, pray, reset the XBOX, the pray again, I can stream movies for a little bit. Then it just losses connection for no reason.

Oh I am sorry it is an N Router. Everything sees everything. I think Windows Vista and Now 7 had huge issues and the firewall just attacks everything. It is just so vague in blocking the XBOX but does so consistantly. It has been a constant issue since vista and 7.

The Xbox is hard wired and so is the computer into a Netgear N Router Model WNR2000.
