I have a home network that consists of 2 Windows 7's and one XP pc.
All works perfectly when the Windows 7's see the XP; if the XP is turned on first all is good.
If I turn on the XP last, ie. using Wake-on-Lan, the Windows 7's won't see the XP. If I do a logout/login on the Windows 7's then the XP shows up.
Network discovery ON
File and printer Sharing ON
Public folder sharing ON
Media streaming ON
File sharing connections 128 bit (i've also tried 40/56 bit)
Password protected sharing OFF
HomeGroup connections ALLOW (recommended)
I don't have HomeGroup configured.
If a Windows 7 computer is turned on it shows up without any issues on the other Windows 7 pc, I haven't checked this on the XP machine.
Any ideas besides doing a logoff/login?
Thanks for any recommendations!
