Windows 7: Networking Windows 7 and XP

Networking Windows 7 and XP

I have three computers: one Windows 7 x64, one Windows 7 x86, and XP SP3 on an Asus Eee 1005HA. The Win 7 x86 machine can see all the computers and shares. The XP machine can see all the computers and shares. The Win 7 x64 machine can see the other Win 7 machine but not the XP machine (the XP machine doesn't show up in Windows Explorer). The XP machine can browse the shares on the Win 7 machine.

Any idea why the Win 7 x64 machine can't see the XP machine? Thanks.

P.S. Both Windows 7 machines are running 7100, and all are connecting to each other over a gigabit switch.

Wayward, Do you have network discovery selected in both home and public? This is in advanced share settings.
