Windows 7 connect to Win XP/XBOX360 and PS3

Hello, ive got a Problem with Windows 7 . After my RC Time was up i changed to Win7 Home Premium last week.

Now ive got several Problems with worked with the RC Version.

My Second PC runs on Windows XP (its my PC for work so i cant change the System to win7 there) and i cant find anymore in the network (the Windows XP doesnt see me too). We are in the Same Workgroup.

My Second Problem is with the Xbox360 and PS3 which are in the Same network. Both can see my PC (but not the xp one , which is strange but not the main problem) but both systems tell me that my pc hast given permission to use the media there.

ive allready gave permissions for all Systems in Mediastreaming Options. If i vew all networks on the Meidastreamoptions i dont find the ps3???

anyone got an idea what i can do?

thx for your help

I suspect you are using the homegroup model for networking, Homegroup has been to have connectivity problems on some systems. You can verify if the\is is the problem by setting up a new network connection using the workgroup model instead. If that cures the problem you can diable IPv6 and kill the homegroup
