This is my first time working with an xbox, and networking, let alone wireless, so i could use a hand. I have a modded xbox with XBMC on it, and the xbox wireless 802.11g adapter. I also have a netgear 802.11g router. Can someone give me a step by step guide how to set up my computer and xbox so i can browse all movies and mp3's on my computer through my xbox and stream them? Do I need some program running on my pc or is it all done by the xbox? Thanks a lot.

i set up smb, i shared the folders, changed the xbmc config file to say <bookmark>
<name>SMB</name>
<!-- you can use the following formats: !-->
<!-- smb://domain;user:password@ip/share/directory/ !-->
<!-- smb://user:password@ip/share/ !-->
<!-- if guest/public access is enabled: !-->
<!-- smb://ip/ !-->
<path>smb://192.168.0.1/MyMusic</path>
</bookmark>

and also tried with the user and pass i'm logged in as but when i try to browse there i get access denied. And my firewall is also off.
