My win Xp desktop does not see my win 7 laptop and vice versa. Have went through the wizard and both are on the same workgroup with different names. When I select view workgroup computers in network places I get an error message not accessible. is there a setting I have missed, it mentions administrator but as I am the adminstrator and there are only two logins I cant see the problem.

Have you set as "shared" any folders and/or printers that you want to have available over the network?

If using third-party firewall software, such as Zone Alarm, have you configured this to allow access to the networked computers, which may involve adding their IP addresses in a trusted section?
