Default Re: Vista Laptop CANíT FIND XP desktop.

They Changed the workgroup name in Vista to WORKGROUP. In XP it was MSHOME. Switch XP to WORKGROUP. That should work. I had the same problem. This link will explain it and how to do it.

Let me know if it works.

Good luck
Kevin

Sorry. Forgot to paste the link.
