Problem Networking with Vista
I am trying to set up home network with Vista and XP desk tops and internet
access via intelligent gateway (wireless router). Initially no computer and
devices were visible on my Vista desktop, but after installing LLTD patch,
atleast XP desk top is visible. Following the problem still persists.
1. File and printer sharing is not possible
2. Other devices such as PSP, Nintendo and other consoles are not visible on
my home network map (in Vista).
Any help will be gratefully accepted.

Mohammad,

File and Printer Sharing classically requires use of the Network wizard, not the
"Network Map". The "Network Map" uses LLTD, which isn't the same as SMBs (aka
CIFS) over NetBT.

This problem is typically caused by a misconfigured or overlooked personal
firewall. What anti-virus package do you use on the XP computer?

You can possibly diagnose the problem, using logs from "browstat status",
"ipconfig /all", "net config server", and "net config workstation", from each
computer. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow instructions
precisely (Download browstat, and note how to open a command window in Vista!):
