XP and 7
win xp cannot see win 7 on network places

I have been round in circles checking settings, and cannot figure this out.

I have wireless network set up at home, and file sharing.

I have 1 win 7 computer and 2 XP computers. I have no prob from win7 getting into XP shared files on network and sharing printer, etc.

My prob lies when I try from my XP computers to see the win7 computer in the network places. It is not there. I can see it in workgroup computers, but can't do anything with it. I try to add it in network places, but it cannot find it by browse or direct typing.

On win7 computer I have it marked to share, have passwords turned off, I have tried to create a homegroup and have removed the homegroup, cause I cannot figure it out.

I am able to access win7 shared files from PS3, so don't understand why I can't from XP. help?
