Help Network Vista to XP computers

1
Hi,

I just got a new computer the other day with Windows Vista. I've been trying to connect it to a network of 2 Window's XP computers without much luck.

the Vista computer can access the internet and print fine through the D-Link router.

I've downloaded the patch on each of the XP computers that everyone recommends, i've tried turning off all firewalls and switched sharing options on.

On the Vista: when i show the entire network map i can see the other 2 XP computers listed but am unable to click on them or highlight in anyway.

On the XP: the Vista computer does not show up in any form on any network map.


if anyone has any suggestions or advice it would be greatly appreciated.

thx

Suggestion: Google search.

I just limited that to theScripts.com. If you really wanted to get some pointed info, you could even try site:microsoft.com.

Anyway, I found these on there (the first, third, and fifth returns on that page):
