    W7 is installed but only sees itself and the internet thru the router.
    How do I get it to see my other XP computers???

    What have you tried so far?
    Have you setup a workgroup for the LAN exchange?

    I think I got it.
    A little more involved than XP, but I set the workgroup to the right name and set up all the sharing in W7.
    I think it is just the workgroup name - though it doesn't seem to matter in XP

    thx
