Windows 7: XP Computers in the Windows 7 Network Map

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit Ver 6.1.7600 Build 7601 - SP1
 
 

Let's see if I understand this........

I have XP Pro Sp3 on one of two PC's that I want to home network, the other being win7.

So after reading 'bout LPt's experience, I won't need to apply the LLTD protocol to it because it already came along with the Sp3 upgrade....
It only needs to be applied to the win7 machine.

Correct?

The router in question is a wired Linksys network-everywhere- NR041 cable/dsl 4port router.

This being my first ever attempt at networking. Is there anything to look out for with this model?

Ok No need to install the hotfix any any machine later than XP SP2, - XP SP3, Vista & win7 have the fix built in

As for setting the network things to watch are

network set as Home or Work (not public)
All systems on same IPv4 network segment, and member of same workgroup.
Firewall set to allow sharing
network discovery and file and printer sharing both on
Identical username on all systems and at least one folder shared using advanced sharing
Password controlled sharing is optional but recommended

Nigel hi.. When I tried to set get the laptop 0n line as you ask me to do..
it showed "This page cannot connect..".. I looked around to see if there were things I might could do.. I did NOT type or change anything .. I did look at my DSL settings.. on the Laptop.. it appears that I don't have a connection on the laptop for that already..
so that showed me NOT connected..
Here is what I saw in :
Local Area Connection Status
IPv4 connection - No Internet access
IPv6......... No Internet access
Media State... Enabled
Speed 100.0 Mbps
So I closed that screen after taking a screen shot..

Hi Nigel, thank you for your reply.

I understand your suggestions, and will apply them as I build my ’net’…….But…..

Because of prior commitments I will not be able to let you know of my progress until late Sunday evening the fourth of April, Eastern Daylight Time.

There are some basic instructions on network set-up in the win7 help (especially the on-line links) - they are actually quite good with some good explanations of concepts - also of course there are our own Tutorials here - though they are more specific to certain detailed setups.

LPT

I think we are at the stage to connect your laptop to the DSL modem directly via cable and use the disk from your ISP to see if you can get on line. As with the desktop I think this may allow you to connect via the router once connected once directly.

Reason for this is that I think there may be some user/Password info that needs to be on the actual laptop to connect.

If you can open a command prompt on the laptop (type CMD into the start search and select cmd.exe then enter). Then type "ipconfig /all" and enter You can then use CTRL-A and Ctrl-C to copy all the text and Paste into a post here - this will hopefully give some better idea of what is going on - in fact It may be an idea to do the same on the desktop to give a comparison.

Note when posting the information use the Code /Code tags on the forum to make things more readable

I have two XP SP3 PCs, they both show up in "The following device(s) can not be placed in the map" section. Since they already have SP3 I can't install the LLTD hot fix. How do you enable the LLTD on the XP PCs? As far as i can tell its not there and or not running?
