Win7 32 / 64 and XP 32 / 64 (on various other computers as well)
 
 

Kari, Baarod, you are more experienced than the rest of us and we do appreciate the help. But for many of us Windows 7 is not working in a network environment. I have followed advice here, at MajorGeeks, looked up on tech net and still cannot get Windows 7 to work like XP did for file sharing. I assume when you first tried out Windows 7 you set it up to share with your other OS's and after a month or so made the decision it works. Same as I would do.

Ask what you need to know and I will post it.
Sites I have tried:
How to Network Windows 7
Share Files and Printers between Windows 7 and XP - How-To Geek
Windows XP and Windows 7 networking issues - Networking & Security
and a few others.
Logically I should be able to get a full map from the networking and Sharing window and set things up. Instead I have this computer, the switch and the gateway connected to the internet and a list of computers below under "the following device(s) can not be placed on the map". This is true on both Windows 7 computers. The XP computers show all devices correctly. So the Windows 7 computers can see the devices but not place them nor give any information but the XP computers can. All help appreciated.

I should add I am file sharing effectively by typing in the IP or the name directly to the "search and command line" box in the start menu.

At work, the network has a Vista rig, two XP's, a Mandriva Linux and some Sevens. Absolutely no problems to setup and maintain. We have successfully set up computers with Seven to customer's networks using different OS's.

I still fail to understand how I am out of touch with reality.

If you have some problems, it's only your reality. When experienced users don't have problems, I wouldn't call it to be out of touch with reality.
Kari,

Don't feel bad. I got slammed earlier. The best idea is just stop helping. We could modify Windows 7 P2P and Homegroup to each other from here to Europe and I don't think it would make a difference. The OP has a bone to pick with Windows 7 or MS and we can't help these folks!
I haven't had any issues networking my 7 and XP boxes but then again I do not use Homegroups. I also don't have any issues with latency at home so I can't see how anyone can blame the OS for the root issue.

I did have a problem with homegroup getting it to see my XP machine. That is before I knew that homegroup was for Win 7 machines. With Chev's help and the help of several others, I got it to work and I have had no problems since. That was not a fault of Win 7; homegroup did exactly what it was designed to do. I could have used a work group and saved myself some trouble.
