hello guys. new to the forum. i have tried everything to my knowledge to get my 360 connected to my pc again.

where i lived before, i had armstrong internet running wirelessly through a dlink di-524 router. the pc connected wirelessly and the xbox was wired. this worked with no problems, just a simple plug and play procedure.

i recently moved and changed isp's. now i use windstream DSL with a [bleep] 2wire modem that i had to call and wait for 20 minutes to get the password to access the firewall crap. the setup is exactly the same except for the modem, but the xbox wont connect through the router. if i plug directly from xbox to pc it works. also, while the xbox and pc wont connect, xbox live works perfectly.

as stated above, i have disabled the firewall on the modem. i also uninstalled avg antivirus and turned off windows firewall. i have tried for about 5 hours total today to get it to work, following just about every guide i came across on google results. what else could i do? when i open wmp11, i can go through the options and eventually come to a screen that says the xbox 360 is shared, so that means that my computer sees the xbox? when i click "find computer" on my xbox, it comes back with no results.

any help would be much appreciated. using windows 7 btw
