I did follow the instructions you posted on the website but still I can't see the other pc's using xp proffessional s3 from my laptop with w7 ultimate. They though can see me and my files. I am able to share the network internet connection, but that's all.

I did turn off the homegroup option and turned on the network discovery and the file sharing option.

Please help

Do you guys have the same network workgroup name? How about using Dropbox instead? You can share files with that.

do a ipconfig /all check to see if other device are visible on your network.
you should be able to see all device connected to your local area network.

With XP The computer names must be different and the workgroup names must be the same. Firewalls sometimes prevent access. Turn them off if any untill you get connected. (Windows firewall will not create a problem.)
