Thanks for reading.. here is my question: I have a TV PC downstairs with windows XP x86 on it. Since the wireless router is so close to it, I have a hard-lined ethernet connection to it. Upstairs I have my main PC which has Windows 7 x64. All of my files are located on the Windows 7 machine; what I'm trying to do is make it to where I can share certain folders so I can access them from downstairs.
When I go to my computer from my Windows 7 computer, in the network places it shows my TVPc, but I cannot access it.
When I get on my xp PC, I cannot see my Windows 7 pc in network places. Note* I have network discovery turned on in public under my network settings.
I also have a homegroup set up on my Windows 7 machine but the xp machine doesn't see that to connect to either.
Do I need to set up an ad-hoc wireless network, or is there a simpler way of doing this? I'm kind of stumped and figured it's probably something easy I'm just not quite sure which direction to go in.. Any advice would be much appreciated!
