networking

I have 3 computers:
1. PC XP
2. Laptop XP
3. PC Vista
and wireless Linksys router
I made network connecting PC XP with Laptop (wireless) I can see from PC XP
Laptop and PC Vista, from Laptop PC XP and PC Vista from PC Vista nothing.
I did everything I could and can't make PC XP (and Laptop) visible from PC
Vista.
PC Vista see nothing but itself (there is no workgroup under network
folder), however some media from oyher computers are visible.
How to make certain resources from PC XP visible for PC Vista?

Have a read of the above link re Vista File and Printer Sharing.

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.

Also, run the XP’s Home Network File and Printer sharing Wizard.
