I am a novice so please bear with me. I have a desktop running XP and a laptop running windows 7. I have them connected to the internet through a dlink router. I had them networked by reading how to's on the web. Everything worked as it should. Due to an unrelated problem I had to restore my XP computer (Acronis) to a point before I networked them. I therefore had to do the whole process again and I cannot get either computer to see one and other. As a last ditch resort I did a clean install of Windows 7 but still no luck. I have the windows firewall disabled on both machines. Anti virus disabled. The computer names are different and the workgroup names are the same. I have file shareing enabled on both machines and permissions set to everyone on the windows 7 machine. I deleted all my networks off of the windows 7 machine and tried to copy my wireless settings from the windows 7 laptop to a usb drive. When I due it tells me to inset a usb drive and hit next but when I insert the usb drive next remains greyed out. I tried a different usb drive but no luck. I originally was able to set this up in a coupe of evening but this time I have been trying different things for over a week and still no go. Any suggestions?
