.I am not able to see XP machine on my Lap which has Windows 7. I remember that I had seen the XP initially.. but later when I could not print to the printer connected on XP machine which is connected with my lap through a Netgear router I noticed of missing the network. I tried many things...but could not make my network PCs appear... I can ping the ip of XP machine which is assigned by the router.. but my lap with W7 cannot find the XP PC. I have NOD32 firewall running... in both machines. Moreover I can access internet through router without any issues... so connectivity to router is not blocked by firewall..
Can some expert help please ??
