i have 3 desktop computer. 1 with windows 7 64bit wired to router, one with xp32 bit wired to router and one with xp 32 bit wireless. in old set up i had 2 xp's and a vista 32 bit and everything worked fine. now the windows 7 comp can see the 2 xp's on the network and can accss shared folders and file and use printers. the 2 xp's can access shared files and folders and printers with eachother but not with the windos 7 comp. the xp machines can see the win 7 comp in the homegroup. but when i try access it they say "ps is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource".
the settings on the win 7 computer are
Network typpe: work
Network Discovery: on
Printer and File Shareing: on
Public Folder Sharing:on
Media streaming:on ( i haven;t touched this setting at all yet)
File Sharing connection: 40 or 56 bit incryption
password protected shareing: off
the work group name is the same on all computers.
i need to be able print from all computers through the win 7 comp and i need to be able to share files back and forth with one of the xp comps and the win 7 comp
