    I have an existing XP peer-to-peer network called "fred" to which I would like to connect win7 computers. With win7, either the homegroup or workgroup works, with the win7 computers seeing each other.
    The XP's see the workgroup, but the win7's don't see "fred".

    How do I connect the win7 computers the the "fred" network? Should be simple, but I haven't figured it out.

    Thanks!

    Start by turning off "Homegroup" on the Win 7 machines. Homegroup will not work with XP. See if any of the suggestions by the How-To Geek will help.
