Xbox One Media Player no longer 'sees' laptop

I've been using the Media Player app to stream movies from my laptop wirelessly for months now, and all of a sudden it no longer recognizes my laptop. All I get is the 'No Devices Found' nonsense.

Before this happened I had trouble actually playing videos for about a week, would play for about 10 seconds then randomly pause, and would just pause every few seconds for no reason.
But now it doesn't even recognise the laptop at all.

Yes, I have restarted both my One and my laptop. Have reinstalled the app, and everything is working on my laptop. Only thing that's changed on my laptop is I've downloaded the latest Windows 7 'updates', though they seem to have downgraded more than anything.

Would it be too much to ask that Microsoft, oh, I don't know....actually test these things before they ship them out the door?
