Has anyone gotten DLNA to work properly with Windows 7 x64 ?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Has anyone gotten DLNA to work properly on Windows 7 64 bit and Windows Media Player 12? I got it working, sort of. It's not reliable though, and very slow. It drops the connection a lot, and when I go to engage it it connects about half of the time and half of the time it won't see the Media Server. It also times out when trying to scan my (admittedly large) music directory on my PC.
I'm sure that my hardware is ok, I think that DLNA is just a buggy system. But if anyone has it working properly with Windows 7 x64 and WMP 12 can you tell me exactly how you set it up?  And if you used another desktop app besides WMP can you tell me what worked for you?
Thanks!

Try setting it up like this.  Hope this helps!
Start Device Manager.
Windows 7 Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager.
The following devices are normally installed:
Anrdoid USB Devices
My HTC
Disk drives
HTC Android Phone USB Device
Modems
HTC Modem (if using as a tethered modem)
Portable Devices
E:/ (Where E represents the assigned drive letter.)
Universal Serial Bus controllers
USB Composite Device
USB Mass Storage Device
If a red X, yellow ! or yellow ? is displayed to the left of a listed device, a conflict is present and the drivers must be updated or reinstalled.
Driver conflicts may also be indicated by a device entry labeled Other Devices or Unknown.
If a conflict is present:
If using the HTC DROID Incredible ADR6300 as a Sync device continue to step 3.
If using the HTC DROID Incredible ADR6300 as a Modem ensure the device drivers are installed. Refer to Downloading and installing VZAccess Manager for additional assistance.
If VZAccess Manager is installed and a driver conflict is still present, continue to step 3.
Right-click the device then click Update Driver Software.
If using Windows 2000 / XP, right-click the device then click Update Driver.
The device name may differ from the example shown.
Click Browse my computer for driver software.
If using Windows 2000 / XP, select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) then click Next.
Enter C:\Windows\System64\driver into the search window then click Next.
The driver location can be entered manually or navigated to by clicking Browse.
If the driver software is not found, a Windows Operating System update may be needed.
Click Close.
