Default Home Wireless Network Problem

I have 4 computers at home..

2 running windows 7

1 Vista

1 XP


Now, I am trying to connect them via IPv4

I have the internet as wireless on all the computers and they are running fine.

Now, under Wireless Connections..I have set up the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway in all the computers.

Still all the computers are able to connect to the internet and doing perfectly fine what they are supposed to be doing.

But I am not able to access any of the computers if I type in \\IPADDRESS What am I doing wrong. I want to be able to share files, printers and anything else is there.

NOTE: DHCP is enabled.

NOTE: I have a Epson printer that is directly connected with one of the computers (desktop and this is the only computer that is connected with the internet with USB Adapter provided by the ISP rest are still wireless but no adapters etc and also this desktop is the 2nd Windows 7 computer).

I am also not able to print anything from the other computers. I see the driver and all is correctly installed.

Please tell me what am I doing wrong and how to solve this issue.

Thank You!

Default Re: Home Wireless Network Problem

Looks like we don't have a tutorial on how to network Windows 7 machines with XP... that will need to change. In the meantime, here's a walkthrough for you:
