    Hey everyone,

    I am having troubles sharing my Windows Media Player 11 library on my Vista machine with my Windows XP computer.

    Both players are sharing media the same way and automatically allowing new devices to connect.

    My roommates computer see's both libraries as well as my Vista Computer. The XP machine does not see the shared library.

    I have Trend Micro PC Cillin on my Vista machine. It is connected by cat5 to a Linksys Wireless router in gateway mode.

    On my XP machine i have AVG antivirus with no firewall installed. It is connect to the Linksys wirelessly - bu so is my roomates laptop.

    On both machines i have the latest .net framwork installed and on the xp machine i installed windows media connect.

    I cant figure it out, i think it is a software problem and not a physical network problem.

    any ideas?
