Hi there :)

Today we purchased a new laptop with Vista home premium. we changed work group to MS Home, shared folders & drives. Cannot see XP pc on laptop, but can see lap top on XP pc, although cannot connect. We are desperate to bring files across from pc to laptop, so any help would be HUGELY appreciated.

Thank you,

Sally ;)

Try this, not actually a fix for the networking problem but will make XP show up in the Network Map click here.
Make sure you have accounts with matching names and passwords on sharing machines. Add the private network address range to any 3rd party firewall if you use one.
