Check in System that both machines are assigned the same workgroup name, XP default is MSHOME, 7,8 is Workgroup, change them both to something the same, then set network as Home or Private.

It may help to change from a public network to a work or home network, the link below shows you how.
Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

Also if you have an Ethernet cable plugged into the laptop it may help to unplug it.

It may help if you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all, not just the ipconfig. Something installed on your system is causing this problem.

It's not a typical Windows problem at all.
