Hi CoreyLowe,

Are you trying to use Internet Connection Sharing to share your PC's internet with your Xbox? Or are you trying to connect your Xbox to Windows Media Center for media streaming?

No im trying to connect it to my PC so i can play its music and videos on my xbox, and play games at the same time, because WMC on Xbox only allows that task to run and nothing else.

I am having a similar problem, my Xbox refuses to pick up on the fact that my PC is sharing media, and it was working fine not long ago at all.

I have a very strong feeling it has to do with the fact that I am unable to check the "stream my media" check box under the sharing portion of the network and sharing center. This is not only annoying, but unusual because this flag was available not long ago at all and no longer seems to be selectable.
