How do i get my modded xbox (ie xbmc) onto my windows network.

I have a software modded xbox, running xbmc (build 1.1.0) trying to connect to my windows network to share files. I am using a Netgear dg834g router. Normal cat 5 cable running from xbox to router. DHCP turned on in router settings, but cannot get xbox to locate network. Also tried manually assigning ip on xbox but no dice
From the limited testing I have been able to do it does not appear that the Xbox is connecting to the router at all (limited testing includes checking attached devices in router diagnostics, pinging expected ip range of xbox from pc on network and using another prgram to share files from pc but xbox did not detect this).
i am pretty sure it is not;
windows network problem as other computers are able to connect to this network
cable problem as i have used this cable to connect another pc to this network and also tested the cable when i made it.
Is there something i need to do to get DHCP to work. or anything else i can do to get this connected. i am bored of burning dvds.
