Do you have some kind of firewall on your PC?

No...

Also, I have two XBox's in my apartment and a few computers...two are hooked up with a cord to my router yet my xbox will only recognize one computer...when I really want it to recognize my computer rather than my roommates but it won't...

what gives?

I'm somewhat computer savvy but this shit is starting to irritate me.

I wish I could help. I'm know a little bit about computers, but linking my computer to my Xbox was easier than I thought.

Hmmm....I cant help you too much other than that I know when you try to hook up 2 PS3's to the same router and try to join a party with eachother it doesn't work.

If I had to guess, I would say it has to do with the IP Addresses of each machine. If you set a Static IP for YOUR computer, and in the settings on your 360 you put in that same IP address, it should work.

EDIT: That probably wont work, but maybe if you set a static IP for you XBox and then have your computer search for it may.

disconnect the vista computer from the router and see if it will find your computer then.

good idea...

question...

Do you stream video files from your PC to your xbox? Do you do it through XP or Vista? If you do it through Vista, is it really slow to access stuff?

You seem like you know just about anything when it comes to this stuff.

Mine was quick. I had to make one adjustment on my computer, went to my Xbox and it saw my computer. Opened it up and there all my songs & such were.

Depends on what you are using. Are you trying to do this solely through Media Center? If so, it will only work on Vista. If you are just wanting to use a shared folder with Divx files then it would work on either system.

Also, are you trying to do this wirelessly or wired? I am assuming wired based on an earlier post.

Just make a shared folder for the entire network. also, make certain your computer is set up for the same same IP range.

can the two computers on the network see each other?

I don't understand why this is always such a HUGE pain in the ass...

You cannot use the Router IP, network or broadcast address...I don't know what this means but it won't let me open up any god damn ports.
