Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
W7 laptop not working well w/XP
I have 4 desktops w/Win XP Home, SP3, IE8 networked via Ethernet in a Work Group to my Valet M10. One laptop w/Windows 7 Home Premium, IE8 is WIRELESS to same router. The desktops communicate with one another. They don't see the laptop. The laptop recognizes the desktops and shares their printer and files intermittently. That is to say, they appear in the workgroup randomly. I don't have a problem of losing the internet connection. I have Comcast broadband. Killing the power to the modem and letting it re-boot, sometimes works; sometimes not. When it does work; it reverts back to the intermittent issue described above. My temporary work around is to call the desktops up via IP addresses but this is cumbersome. Any advice or thoughts on this?
