Airport Extreme Base station drops PC on Network

I got an Extreme set up downstairs in the basement connected through Ethernet cable to PC, and my iMac in my room upstairs connects wirlessly to it.

Now I bought this for Gigabit Ethernet, but I can't see my PC on my iMac, it worked breifly for a day, I could see the PC on my iMac and transfers were fast, now its gone and we tried trouble shooting it with my brother at the PC and me at the iMac, we put on "File Sharing in Airport Utility, and turned file sharing ON on the PC, droped Firewall, Nortan,..but nothing.

At first when it did show up the first time it just did that randomly...

If I jump on my neighbors router I can see her computer in the Shared arrown in Finder, so that means theres nothing wrong on the iMac, but when I on my router the Sharing arrow disapears and we can't see my PC.

Apple Care just told me the do the same thing..check the PC prefences and Airports Prefrences....

Stuff usley works fine untill there is a PC involved. I would check the settings on the PC to make sure they are correct some times Windows randmley disconfigures itsself with out telling you. Also try turning everying off including your AirProt and Modem and power them up in this order, Modem wate for it to get a connection, Airport wate for it to get fulley started, and them the computers.
