I know that I have addressed this posting to some Vista Newsgroups even
though my computer in question is a Toshiba L455-S5980 running Windows 7
Home Premium, but hopefully someone can help me or direct me otherwise.
I have a wireless network with a Linksys WRT160N router connected to a
Sony desktop running XP MCE(2005). In addition, I have another Toshiba
laptop running XP Home Edition.
With the new Win7 laptop in the Network I can see all 3 computers, as well
as access files in both the XP computers. However, I cannot access any of
the Win 7 files from the XP computers. I also have tried to share an HP
Officejet 6110 with the Win 7 laptop, but when I try to Add Printer, which I
can see the name of with the Wizard, I get an error notice that access is
The XP computers Workgroup name is MSHOME; however the Win 7 laptop was
named WORKGROUP by default, but I changed this name to MHOME where all 3
computers now have the same Workgroup name,
If anyone can assist me in establishing both file sharing of the Win 7
laptop and adding the sharing of printer I would be most appreciative.
