Can I use networking between the two computer, the one computer has the operating system which is windows XP while the other computer has the operating system which is the windows 7?

Yes you can network XP and 7 together. The trick to this is during network setup you have to change the workgroup name on your XP computer to match Windows 7. The default workgroup name on 7 is homegroup. Change the name to homegroup in XP. Next during network setup on your 7 computer when you reach the workgroup options the setup will generate a password to access your homegroup. Write this password down and don't lose it. It's kind of hard to retrieve if you misplace it (speaking from experience :) ) You should now be able to share your router and files. Hope this was helpful.

Windows Xp: Speed Up Your, Speed Up Your Network and Internet Access

Increasing network browsing speed

Does your computer slow down when you browse your local area network and connect to other computers that are sharing data? One of the most common causes of this slowdown is a feature of Windows Explorer that looks for scheduled tasks on remote computers. This effort can take some time on some computers and can really slow down your browsing. The window with which you are browsing the network may appear to freeze momentarily, as the system is waiting for a response from the remote computer.

Windows XP: Speeding Disk Access

Although this problem is a complex one, the solution is very simple. Instead of having to wait for the remote scheduled tasks, which is useless information to anyone who is not a system administrator remotely configuring scheduled tasks, you can disable this feature.

In order to do this, you will have to change the System Registry and delete a reference to a key so that this feature will not be loaded. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open up the Registry Editor by clicking the Start Menu and selecting Run. Then type regedit in the text box and click the OK button.

2. Once the Registry Editor has loaded, expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key.

3. Next, expand Software and then Microsoft.

4. Locate Windows and expand that as well.

5. You will want to be editing the main system files, so expand CurrentVersion.

6. Because this feature is a feature of the Windows component known as Explorer, expand the Explorer key.

7. Next, you will want to modify the remote computer settings, so expand the RemoteComputer key and then expand the NameSpace key to show all of the features that are enabled when you browse to a remote computer.

8. In the NameSpace folder you will find two entries. One is "{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}" which tells Explorer to show printers shared on the remote machine. The other, "{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}," tells Explorer to show remote scheduled tasks. This is the one that you should delete. This can be done by right-clicking the name of the key and selecting Delete.

If you have no use for viewing remote shared printers and are really only interested in shared files, consider deleting the printers key, "{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}", as well. This will also boost your browsing speed.

Once you have deleted the key, you just need to restart and the changes will be in effect. Now your network computer browsing will be without needless delays.

Windows Vista not accessing shared folders on network. It keeps asking to log onto network PC and keeps saying cannot log in when trying accounts on the network pc. Both PC's are on the same workgroup and...

This is a usuall problem when connecting Vista and XP, specially when your vista is a 64-bit and your XP is 32-bit. What you need to do is to manually map the folders on the vista by opening windows explorer and then clicking on Map network drive, you need to put in the exact folder location. Next thing is you need to add user not only activationg the allow access, you need to add the user on the shared folder, you are only using workgroups, unlike domain networks, you just have to give them permission.

What is enterprise network?

During the 1980s, organizations began to install local area networks to connect computers in departments and workgroups.
enterprise networks would let people throughout the organization exchange e-mail and work together using collaborative software. An enterprise network would connect all the isolated departmental or workgroup networks into an intracompany network, with the potential for allowing all computer users in a company to access any data or computing resource.

An enterprise network is both local and wide area in scope. It integrates all the systems within an organization, whether they are Windows computers, Apple Macintoshes, UNIX workstations, minicomputers, or mainframes.
An enterprise network can be thought of as a "plug-and-play" platform for connecting many different computing devices. In this platform scenario, no user or group is an island. All systems can potentially communicate with all other systems while maintaining reasonable performance, security, and reliability.

the difference between workgroup and the domain is
workgroup is a peer to peer network, no centralised administration and security is less.
domain is a client/ server network, administration will be done by domain and is more secure.

Adding printer

Make sure that no firewalls are running or atleast you're trusting your internal network. Sometimes you might have to create an account for the other user to connect to the printer locally and give them manage rights. make sure both computers are on the same workgroup so you don't have to play around with rights and security settings that way you could browse the machine via network neighborhood and add the printer easily.

Good luck
