I've got a problem but cant find a solution searching.

I've got 2 PCs, an xbox and a router.

PC1 is connected to the router via ethernet.

PC2 is connected to the router via wireless.
PC2 has a second network card and is connected to the xbox via that.

I've got files shared on both PCs, and i access the workgroup MSHOME in xbox media center and both computer names show up. I can go into PC2 and browse the shared files no problem, but in PC1 when i click on its name it says "Connection was refused".

On PC1 i can access PC2's shared files and vice versa.

Ive got firewall turned off on both computers.
I can connect to the web on the xbox as i have the wirless connection on PC2 shared.

I assume its possible for me to get to the files on PC1 because the computer name shows up in workgroup share in XBMC.

I'm out of ideas, any help would be great.

I'm not sure, but something you could try:

On PC1 (wired PC) open a command prompt and type route add <XBOXIPADDRESS> mask <WIRELESS_PC_IPADDRESS>

If it works, save it by doing the same thing but put -p after add
