    OK i have read other post and what i did i can see the files on XP compter belonging to win 7 but not able to find printer which are connected to xp on the win 7.
    First off, I had all printers connected to win7 which also has the router still. DO I need to remove the printers on win 7? My husband and kids have lap tops which we are all on a network, for some reason was set up on my husbands laptop. I hooked up the old xp pro in another room which is connect by cable, not wireless. The xp pro now has the printers to it. I can see the win 7 on the xp network but not able to access the printers on win 7 and can not see the xp comp. at all.
    I did add the guest acct on the xp now not sure where to go from here. Basicly all i want the xp is to operate the printers and software not operational on win 7.
    One other question I do have a password on my router (previously several neighbor were accessing It. Will the network be accessable with out a password to the router?
    Thanks for your help in advance and i look forward to hearing from you.
