    I checked and everyone is on the same workgroup. Here's the thing, the sever can see me the other computer can see me but I can't see the sever or the other computer. I checked and both of them see my computer on the workgroup or network but when I check my computer I don't see either one of them.

    Hi,
    kindly furnish me with more information?
    - Is your network running on a domain or workgroup?
    - Are the computers also vista?

I guess you need to make sure everybody is in the same WORKGROUP.
I need to also know the kind of Operating system the server is running
But the buttom line is everybody have to be in the same workgroup

Use the following steps for windows Vista

Control Panel - System

Click Change Setting in the Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings.
Click Change
Select Member of "Workgroup"
Enter workgroup name.

Enabling File and Printer Sharing Options By changing your network location type to private, network discovery is automatically enabled in the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window. The following additional file and printer sharing options must be manually enabled:

  • File sharing
  • Public folder sharing
  • Printer sharing
  • Password protected sharing
When all of these sharing and discovery options are enabled, your computer can:
  • Locate other computers and devices on your home network and have other computers locate your computer
  • Share its folders
  • Share its Public folder
  • Share its printers
  • Require user names and passwords for other computers that connect to the shared folders and printers of this computer
To enable file sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to File sharing.
  2. Within the File sharing settings, click Turn on file sharing, and then click Apply.
To enable public folder sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Public folder sharing.
  2. Within the Public folder sharing settings, click one of the following:

      • f you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
      • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
    1. Click Apply.
I guess this should get you started.

Running the risk of a thick ear from the wife, I would dismantle and uninstall the network. Reboot your computer and set it up again then add your wifes computer without letting 7 change the settings.

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
