i am trying to connect my xbox 360 to windows media player 11 via my pc, i have followed all instructions that i can follow given on the site but my pc does not have a list of things to share my media with, im not sure what is wrong, but just in case it has something to do with the way i am connected, here is a brief description:

i have an ethernet cable that runs from my 360 straight into the back off my pc, the pc is then connected to the internet via a wireless network USB adapter that gives a wireless connection to the family network, so why cant my computer read that the 360 is there?

the network cable you would need would be a cross over cable if you hook the xbox directly to the back of a PC.

This peer to peer connection requires you to specify an IP address on your Deskop and on your XBOX360

for the testing portion i would recommend disabling the wireless network

after you have added media to your player it should be able to be shared
