Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

So I am having a problem where I can't see any of my homes XP Computers in the My Network Places Folder on my new Vista Laptop and I can't see the Laptop on any of the XP Computers. However if I use Run and type (ipaddress) I can access the files on it just fine. So for some reason they aren't showing up in the My Network Places Folder, is there any reason for that? And does anyone know how I can fix it. If worst comes to worst I can just create a makeshift My Network Places Folder and put shor


Answers :

In Vista you have to go into Network settings and turn on your public sharing and if you want it password protected or not.
You need to make the sure that your router is a private one password protected and they all have to be connected to the router at the time and set it to home when you connect to the network or in the network and sharing area
