I have a WDTV Live that is hooked up to my TV. I have been using to stream movies from my computer, on which I created a shared folder with the movies, but starting 3 days ago, the WDTV Live no longers sees my PC. Its not that it doesn't see the shared folder, it doesn't see the computer. It sees my son's computer and my wife's work computer, but it doesn't see mine anymore.
Is it possible a setting got changed on my computer? I can't figure out why it can't even see it. I'm not very technical, so if you have follow up questions regarding WIFI or my router, please use small words
All computer connect to the internet via WIFI, through a router connected to my Comcast modem.

Probably windows firewall was reset by a M$ update.

try turning whatever firewall software you have on your computer off. then see if it will connect. if it does it is a firewall rule that needs to be changed. try this as a first step as Forbin4040 suggested.

No windows security essentials, or internet provider antivirus software, Norton, McAfee, etc, that might have an intergrated software firewall?
