7/XP Problems

Hi, Ive recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate on two of my computers.
The old slow one is still running Windows XP Pro SP3.

The problem is, My two 7 computers can see XP fine in the network map, But they cant see it in the network folder.
The XP computer cant see either of the 7 computers in its network folder.

All my networking options are set to allow in 7, and I've installed the the link layer hotfix thing on XP.
Please help me.

You mean the Xp doesn't show up in your default Homegroup?

If so, then that's right cos Homegroup for W7 are only for W7s. Network map is just a fancy way to tell u what is on your network.

No, It doesn't show in the folder "Network"
eg the one in the start menu, and windows Explorer.

I don't have a homegroup, it wouldn't work when i tried to set it up:S

Double check your Advanced Sharing settings. What is your current Network, Home, Work or Public.

Can Xp ping w7 and vice versa, not sure what the fix was that u installed. Are all your machines wirelessly connected to your home network?

Neither can ping each other, the fix was the Link Layer Topology Discovery Responder, Hotfix KB922120

The Fix....does that mean your problem is fixed. How in the world was that the fix, you mentioned that you had installed that particular fix in your original post

Sounds like you got hit by the LLTD Responder installation bug that XP_SP3 users are seeing.

Here's how to fix it.
