    Hi all!

    I know this problem have been described some times before, but it seems that I have tried all the workarounds and solutions, without getting my problem solved.

    The problem is that my XBOX cannot stream from my computer anymore. Here's some facts:

    My computer:
    - Is running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and is fully updated.
    - Can "see" the XBOX on the Full Network Map, but nowhere else (except media sharing. See beneath).
    - Have all the relevant services on automatic (UPNP, Media Player Streaming etc).
    - Have media sharing enabled with full rights on the network. When editing media sharing right, the XBOX do appear, but only when "all networks" is selected, as if it's not on the same network? Maybe the presence of the XBOX in that menu is just an old setting cached or something.
    - Is connected to a switch and from there to a fibernet router to the internet (the fibernet router is not configurable). Internet is running fine.
    - Have had "Homegroup" enabled and disabled, without any difference.

    My XBOX:
    - Is fully updated.
    - Cannot "see" the computer. When running tests the "PC Not Listed" just appear.
    - Is connected to the internet via. the same switch and router as the computer. Internet / XBOX Live is running fine.
    - Network settings is set to automatic.

    This have all worked fine before. But after I moved, it have either stopped working properly or not at all.

    It driving me mad, that Windows 7 and the XBOX can't just connect to each other, when connected to the same LAN switch. And Windows/XBOX support is useless. (n) They only apply on "family-level", with their stupid "have you connected the lan-cable?" kind of thing. (n) What I need, is a technical reason why this is happening, and what I can try to solve it. Any help is appreciated. :)
