RE: Home network problem
Hi Michael,

Starting from scratch try this:

1. Click Start.
2. Click Control Panel.
3. Click Network and Internet.
4. Click Network and Sharing Center.
5. Select the settings that you would like to use.
I suggest these basic settings for Vista:
Network discovery – ON (make sure Work Group is same name on XP and Vista)
File Sharing – ON
Public folder sharing – ON
Printer Sharing – ON


Then:

For sharing users folders, highlight Folder that you want to share > click
on Share on Windows toolbar > Change Sharing Permissions > add Everyone

OR

right click Folder that you want to share > properties> Sharing tab >
Advanced Sharing > Permissions > add Everyone

You might have to run a Network Wizard on XP to make sure your XP settings
are correct.



I hope this helps...
