Windows 7: LAN Between an XP and Windows 7 Computer

LAN Between an XP and Windows 7 Computer

Hi Group;

My desire is to be able to share files among all of my computers. I'm using a HotSpot for each individual computer, hence each computer has two NICs, one being WiFi the other being Ethernet.

The Windows 7 uses HomeGroups, and XP uses MSHOME. At one point, months ago, I had such configured where I could map a network drive on the Windows 7 computer to the XP computer's drive and that worked okay except if I turned on the WiFi NIC, on either computer, it'd corrupt the Ethernet or/and WiFi NIC.

I now have both NICs on both computers configured to operate correctly while both are on, and on each computer I can PING the other but can't seem to create the HomeGroup/MSHOME grouping on either, nor can I map a drive from the Windows 7 to XP computer. I have noticed that the XP computer doesn't have its default gateway set and wonder if therein lies the problem.

I do admit that half of my configuration has been guess work (that's usually how I learn) but seem to be at a stand-still at this point. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Both computer's IPCONFIG output:
