where to start, or should i bother coz this is a mish impossible!
Iv'e been trying for three days now to get my crappy laptop to work with my WMP11 (windows media player), there both microsoft
products, why is it so difficult??
BT Home hub connected wired to my xbox, wi-fi connected to my Windows Vista Home Basic laptop, i have also tried hub to laptop wired also,
in '' manage network connections'' I have set up my wi-fi for sharing & in settings I have 3 xbox ports open with UDP, what ever that means?
In my network map my xbox is visible.
In '' network & sharing center'' discovery is on, file sharing is on, public folder sharing is on (read only), media sharing is on.
In WMP I have media sharing on & xbox selected.
On the xbox, when I search for computers I get the message ''PC not found''
The Things I have tried:
-reset network settings
-turned off firewall
-WMP fix through microsoft website
-services.msc & checked: SSDP Discovery Service, Universal Plug and Play Device Host, Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service (all are running & set to automatic)
-DRM License upgrade
The things I have tried are not listed in any peticular order, I can't remember where I started, I have also done some other stuff that I cant remember also, the only thing I can think now is that there might be some advanced settings I might have screwed up in the process of this attempt, if there is a networking pro anywhere that can help that would be great,
