    Networking win 7 and XP??

    I have XP pro sp-3 on my older comp and win 7 home premium on the other. I'd like to set up a wireless network for them using linksys 3000 router.
    This XP comp use to network with older router and xp home but won't now.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    Hello Ted,

    Thanks a lot for the link.

    I completed all but the last part of the add printer wizard to connect the printer on my Win 7 machine to my friend's XP Home machine, but then the procedure for XP Home differs from that for XP Pro. When I get to the screen shown on the attached screenshot and click next I get a connecting to roy-pc window asking for a user name and password, and whether I input my user name or my friend's user name, in each case leaving the password blank, as neither of us uses one,I am told the credentials supplied comflict with existing credentials.

    If you can tell me what I am doing wrong I would be very grateful.

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy
