Problem joining W7 to old W7 and XP network


New Member
Need help joining a new 7-computer to old workgroup (static ip's, IPV4 etc..) which consists of old xp and 7 -machines...
The problem is, that it is impossible to get a new 7 machine to recognice the old xp-machines in network -if there is even a one "old" 7-machine connected when first time connecting the new one to the workgroup. When the new 7-machine is the only 7-one in the network -no problem xp's found and it will recognice later all computers 7's and xp's.
So, is there any way to get the "wrongly addicted" new 7-machine to recognice also the xp's? The only way I,ve found is to reinstall 7 and be sure that it is the only 7-one when first time joining to the workgroup..
