When you bridge a connection, the inbound data doesn't 'see' the connected computer -- it gets forwarded through the bridge to the gateway. If the media server is on the laptop, then the bridge makes a direct connection to the gateway and the server becomes transparent and unreachable.

It's a limitation of windoze -- once you bridge the connection the laptop disappears -- only solution is to get wireless (or wired direct) to the 360. Sorry :(
