I'm hoping someone can help me, I just connected a new Windows 7 PC onto my existing XP Windows network that consisted of 4 XP computers. I've done everything I can think of after going through all the posts but still have a problem. A network connected by a router, all my computers can see each others but only the windows 7 computer can access the XP computers but not the other way around (XP can communicate with each other). The XP computer can see the windows 7 computer drives and files (set for sharing, not sure I've done it right) 1. That Windows 7 is setup in a workgroup, 2. all computers have the same group name all allow file sharing. 3. Use 40 or 56 encryption. What am I missing.. Thank you all,
