    HI

    I had the 360 and laptop set up fine.
    I was asked to upgrade Windows Media Player 11 today.
    Now I can not play any music or pictures from my Laptop
    Or use the laptops wi fi to go on to xbox live.

    Do you still see your files through the xbox? Might have to redo the share on the directories through windows media player again. Not sure about the wifi issue though.

    I had nothing but trouble when using WMP11 so got rid of it and went back to Media Connect 2 and was streaming within minutes.

    I like WMP 11 why can we not keep Media Connect 2? MS make it very hard to set up now.

    check your firewall,

    best thing is to disable it and then see what happens. I had the same problem.

    One thing ive noticed is that you need your videos in My Videos folder and music in My Music folder in My documents.

    cheers
