Hi all

I am trying to connect my xbox360 to my laptop (wireless) so i can stream music and films from the lappy to the 360. both are wireless and both connect to the internet fine. I have xp sp2 with WMP11. when i go into library, share media, my laptop does not see my 360??

I have been on a few forums but cant seem to get it sorted. even been on a C-Net video tutorial but still, the laptop wont find the 360!

can anyone help?

thanks as always

Have you entered the Xbox Ip address in the network places?

Is your firewall blocking access?

no, the xbox and laptop are wireless and connected to my net gear router. i can use my xbox live no problem as well as the internet, how do i enter or even find out where i get my xp ip address from? i thought it was the same as the laptops ip address?

man thanks
