The Xbox 360 appears in the Media Sharing window but the Allow button is grayed out. I connect to Xbox Live with a crossover cable to the SB3 fine. Xbox shows an IP address of 192.168.1.103. SB3 is 192.168.1.100. Can anyone offer some help please?

Laptop - XP Pro/SP2 wireless
Router - WRT54G firmware 1.02.0
Xbox 360 fall update

It doesn't sound like this is likely to be related to the SB (though you could test that theory by running an ethernet cable from the Xbox to the server). Sounds more like a WMP11 issue.

Wouldn't that have to be a crossover ethernet cable?

Anyway I'm getting there. I went to Network Connections/Internet Gateway/Properties/Settings(Services-Xbox)/Service Settings - where I changed Name or IP Address of the computer hosting this service on your network to 192.168.1.100 - which is the SB3. The IP address of the Xbox is 192.168.1.103.

I have music from WMP11 playing on the Xbox through the SB3 - a minor miracle! Now to figure out video...
