Networking Vista with XP
I am unable to see my new Laptop running Vista, on my p.c. running XP pro. Yet the p.c. with XP Pro is visible on Vista. The Laptop connects by wireless conx to the Router. The p.c. with XP Pro connects to the router via cable. Having changed the Workgroup Name to be the same on both computers, I am now lost for further ideas. My new wireless printer is available to both machines. (I wish I had never been "Vista'd") Help please?
