    Hi guy's

    I have not been able to link my Windows PC to my 360 yet (bit of a technical dimwit) can you guy's help me out.

    The PC is located downstairs and i use NETGEAR wireless equipment to get onto XBOX Live as my 360 is upstairs (Router MR814v2 with the ME101 Ethernet Bridge plugged into the 360)

    How do i get the 360 to recognise that the PC is there?

    You have to download it from the Xbox website. You intsall it on your PC and then it will search for compatible devices e.g. the 360

    With XP you need to install "Windows Media Connect" to allow your 360 to stream music and photos.

    Please note ONLY media centre 2005 will stream video, XP SP2 can not

    Go to http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/pcsetup/default.htm

    And click the setup button and it'll guide you through!

    I have installed Windows Media Connect (don't have a Windows Media PC, but i only want to access my music anyway)

    Windows Media Connect on the PC can find and accept the XBOX 360, however the XBOX360 cannot find the PC

    My cable modem is connected to the router, then from the router to the PC
