    Hi all,

    Since today i'm new with windows7 ultimate x64, i had XP pro x86.

    I had my xbox running as a mediaplayer (with XBMC), I all configured it today in windows 7, but it doesn't work... Xbox keeps asking for username and password (in XP it was not needed).

    I checked the advanced options with shared networking. 'using password' is off.

    PC (workgroup)
    LAN: 192.168.0.1
    SUB:255.255.255.0
    STNDGTWY: -

    XBOX (workgroup)
    LAN: 192.168.0.3
    SUB: 255.255.255.0
    STNDGTWY: 192.168.0.1

    On the XBOX i can see the PC in workgroup, but I can't acces it. Does anyone know why?

    I did the following:

    1.) I discovered my win7 PC was configured with Homegroup and only win7 computers can connect with the Homegroup-function, so I switched it off. I went to the good old Workgroup networking.

    2.) I checked the configuration of the LAN adapter - all was configured to share files

    My Xbox sees my PC, but I have to use a LOGIN and PASSWORD (never saw this with XP). What kind of login and password do I need?

    Kind Regards,
    Alfie
