    I am trying to use my Windows 7 on my home network and I am having some
    trouble. I have two XP machines, one is professional and the other is
    home and I am using Windows 7 Professional. I shared a folder in
    Windows 7, but in XP Professional, in My Network Places, it does not
    even see the Windows 7 machine though I can ping the ip address.

    In Windows 7, I can see my XP Professional machine, but I am unable to
    see the shared folders and if I click on the machine I am asked for a
    username and password even though I set the permissions to everyone. It
    is a home network and all the machines are close by so I don't need to
    really be using a username and password and at this point I am just
    interested in getting the network to work.

    Any ideas? I have looked all over the network, but nothing really helped.

    Never mind, I figured it out. It had to do with the reserved addresses
    in my router.
