First go to start and click Control Panel.
After that you should click Network and Internet.
Then click Network and Sharing Center
After that click Change advanced sharing settings.
Turn all those on.
Tell me if it worked or not in your next post.

Go to Windows Media Player in the setting turn on Media Sharing then turn on your xbox and they will find each other on the network then in Windows Media player your xbox will show and accept sharing with it.
