What router are you using? What version of windows do you have XP Home, XP Pro, W2000, XP Media Center? What ISP are you using? Does you router support UPnP? Have you updated the firmware from your router's website(If available)? How is your Xbox connected to the LAN?

Make sure your linksys device is acting as a DHCP server. Make sure your PC and your XBOX 360 are set to DHCP and are receiving it from the same scope (I.E. I have seen people have their DSL or CABLE modems also giving DHCP on different networks). Check your network settings from the PC with CMD from the run menu, IPCONFIG and it should show as an address given in the DHCP scope of your linksys. Since the linksys has a firewall, I recommend turning Windows Firewall off if you are running XP SP2.

The reason you are not seing a lot of people having this problem is because out of the box it should be working fine, it did for me and my friend that has one. The only reason it wouldn't work in my opinion, is if they were on different networks.

Good luck!

I just had another thought. Unless your PC is running Windows Media Center OS, use "Pictures" and "Music" to connect to your media connect enabled PC and not the "media center" option on the XBOX. Remember to allow file sharing with the xbox on the pc side. Download your pc side stuff here.

Hope that helps.
