try this too...
START...CONTROL PANEL...SERVICES..ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS...SERVICES..

Navigate to Universal Plug and Play Device Host .... Right click on it and select properties...
In the General tab select startup type of Automatic... If the Service Status is stopped then press the Start button.
EVEN IF YOU DON'T SEE ..Universal Plug and Play Device Host
Repeat for SSDP Discovery Service

also may want to try to run the networking wizard
