XP to Vista network problems

2 New Member
I have a home network with 4 pc's on it. All 4 are connected to the Internet via a Linksys DI-604. 3 of the pc's are Windows XP Pro and 1 is Vista Business. The problem I am having is that while the Vista pc can see and pass data to and from the XP pc's, the XP's can't see or pass any data to the Vista pc. I have a USB laser printer hanging off the Vista pc that I would like to print to once in awhile. Note: The Vista pc used to be an XP pc and everything, including being able to print to the USB printer, worked great. Can you please help? JMax

No problem, post again if none of those work. (Or try searching farther down the thread, I think this page and the two previous might also have some interesting threads...)

Vista 1 can not see xp #3 Vista 2 can not access Vista 1 Again, entire drive was shared. I can get to the public...

Well, to start I just got Windows Vista a few months ago. It works great, but the trouble came when I decided to connect all of my computers - XP Home, XP Professional and Vista - to a home network. I have a broadband connection that connects into my wireless router, and the Vista connects, wired, through that router. My ethernet printer also connects through that router. I have 2 wireless computers, an XP Home and XP Professional, that connect...

I had a three station XP network with a NAS attached that worked fine. Then I replaced one of the PCs with a Vista computer. The Vista PC which has a USB Linksys WiFi and can connect to the Linksys SRX-200 router for Internet access but cannot see any other PC in the network. I have tried clicking on all the sharing and discovery buttons and even took down any firewalls temporarily and still no luck. The Vista cannot ping any other PC...

All of my computers were working fine with my network, 3 with XP, 1 with Vista, 1 Network HD and 1 network printer. Router is a D-Link DIR-655. I haven't changed anything but none of my XP computers can see the network and the Vista can, I get an error that the network is not accessible. I can still connect to the internet with all of the computers...Did Vista hijack my network? How do I fix this? Thank you for any help you can give me.

I have set up my network, PC1 is running Vista, PC2 running XP. I have no problems using Vista pc to access files on XP pc. When trying to access files and printer from the XP pc I am asked for a user name and password. I have never used any passwords on the network before now, and don't recall being asked to set a password during creating the network. PC's are networked through a Netgear DG834 modem/router/switch, and neither have any problem...

We use linux Samba servers and as an extra precaution we don't allow it's name to be visible. On XP it automaticly...

Hi, I'm having a network problem I'm hoping I can resolve (and a few questions.) Currently I have a desktop with XP Pro on it. I just purchased a laptop with Vista, and wanted to network it with the desktop. For some reason, the desktop can locate and access the laptop, but the laptop cannot locate or even see the desktop. They're both in the same work group and network, and all the sharing permissions are turned on, as far as I can tell. ...

I have a home network running wired and wireless via a D-Link DSL Modem/Router. For some time, I've been trying to overcome the problem of not being able to get any of the XP Home (SP3) machines to access my Vista HPx32 (SP1) laptop through the wire. (Though vice versa works.) I can push and pull stuff when the Vista laptop is doing the 'driving'. The XP machines all see the laptop - but when I try to push/pull any files to/from the shared...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...

Hello I'm a network technician in training and I need your help. I am currently learning how to create and manage the different types of VPNs and I have a question about LAN-to-LAN VPNs.
