Check your router's settings to see if there are any settings to allow UDP traffic or multicast traffic.
Some routers are crap and either a) don't have the proper settings or b) just mishandle traffic regardless of the settings. This can even vary within the same router for wired vs wireless traffic.

However, reading each one, I thought it might be a router thing seeing as my laptop worked but was wireless and my pc is directly connected.
found a website for my router and I disabled the IGMP Proxy.
No idea what that is or how it fixed it, but I thought I would at least post it up in case anyone else had this problem.
Thanks again for your help.

It was killing me, as PS3 Media Server had been working fine for me for over a year and then suddenly I could no longer "see" it on my PS3. Then I found this thread, and I had everything back up and working within 2 minutes!:

Here's the info from that thread:
Try disabling the IGMP proxy on the main router.
Click on the Advanced icon.
Select IGMP proxy from the menu.
Select Disabled from the first pulldown.
I realize that you can't post troubleshooting info in the FAQ for every combination of router/service, but this might help a lot of folks using Verizon Fios because as I understand it everyone is going to get this firmware upgrade, which will then "break" PS3 Media Server. I hope this helps others as much as it helped me!
