Welcome to SF,

Please disable any Firewall or Security Software for now and see if you can access the C$ Drive.
Failure to ping, number one suspect is a Firewall issue.

If above suggestion didn't help at all please provide an ipconfig /all of the XP and Windows 7 computers for review.
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd press enter (run as Admin). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results here.

Just curious why people in HOMES using a class A network and borrowing 16 bits for a subnet mask???? anyone explain that to me....

You would only do that if you wanted more subnets and less hosts... but that usually is not meant for a typical home LAN. Most of the time we use the Class C network with 24 bit subnet for homes to give us 255 hosts of course minus 2 for broadcast and gateway...

I mean there is nothing wrong with it at all. It is still a private used address but I have seen a lot of people from different countries use the Class A network. i was just always bogged by the idea......

I wonder if first you try doing things the easy way - letting the OS's and router set up the network, first on one machine, then on the next, allowing DHCP and automatic discovery and configuration to get a working network - would be more productive.

If you wish to have a network using 10.0.0.x private addresses, and your router gateway is set at 10.0.0.1, there should be no problem assigning addresses by DHCP to Windows XP or 7 hosts, which can later be assigned static addresses, when all is working satisfactorily.

Networks are complex assemblies of services working together and modern operating systems do an amazing job of automating the process. I remember the old days of networking Windows 3.1 and DOS 5.0 using Novell Personal Netware manually, and the amount of time taken configuring each machine. And then there was the cabling...

I run my Workgroup/Homegroup network wirelessly between several laptops, only using IPv4, and variously connecting between Windows XP, Windows 7 and Linux multibooting systems. I won't say that there haven't been problems, but if I had to manually set up each machine I'd be rather more grey-haired than I am already.
