    Windows 7 Home Premium Acer Aspire
    XP Home Edition SP 3

    Having problems networking the above pc's
    I used to have two xp pc's, and all worked ok, even printing
    wirelessly. Read somewhere the Home Edition is the problem
    They just dont want to work together.

    Anything obvious I am missing.

    Thank you ..Rob

    Homegroup is for win7 machines only. To network XP and win7 machines
    use the network and sharing centre.
