First each of the computer needs to be in the same workgroup (i.e. home) and share the same internet connection. So if all three computers are in the same area, they all need to be connected to the internet via the same router, or via wifi.
Once that is done you'll be able to set up the homegroup to be able to share files between computers..
There is a step by step guide here to walk you through that process.
I'm not sure what you mean by "connect your windows XP to the internet" Windows XP is an operating system for a computer To connect a computer to the internet, You need a service provider that provides Internet service such as your local cable company. They will install the necessary equipment to connect your computer to the internet. Verizon provides FIOS service in selected areas. These providers provide broadband service
"Comparing Cable and DSL. You can connect to the internet using a modem. Two most widely used broadband modems that transmit analog information and convert it to digital for these purposes are DSL and cable, each with different benefits. Most notably, both are faster than dial-up.".
Dial up service is the least expensive of the services , but it tends to be slower in all aspects of internet service.
Make sure you are receiving a proper IP address from the DHCP server....If you run a cmd prompt (windows icon, type cmd and hit eneter, then ipconfig) you should see a 192.168.0.x address. If not, go to the control panel, network connections, manage network connections, and be sure that TCP/IP (V4) is set as auto-configure....
If you are sharing the connection through an XP computer, you will need to run the Internet and connection sharing Wizard on the XP computer, and transfger the settings on a disk to the Windows 7 PC. A simpler solution (assuming you are on a cable/dsl connection would to be to go to your local big box store and buy an Internet/Firewall router. It would also increase your security.
You need firewall functions enabled, then go to Connections -> DSL -> Properties -> Advanced and check the box "Internet connection sharing".
You will need another network from which the connections come, that will be routed through the DSL connection. Select this network in the drop down box just below. I expect it will be something like, "LAN Connection #1" or such.
The other machines shall have to be configured to have the DSL'ed PC as gateway. In the LOCAL network connection properties of the DSL'ed PC, check the IP address assigned to it. Then in all the other PC's local conn properties, put the DSL'ed PC IP address as gateway.
To share the induvidual internet connection with other pc s you need the following: 1. The pc which owns the internet it need an ethernet connection too. 2. The other pc's which dont have internet connection it needs ethernet connection too. 3. You need an equipment which connects the internet pc and other pcs. It called Ethernet switch.
Linksys company has a good product, which can connect 4 pc together, called linksys Wrtg54gl. It not only a small switch it also has the capability to connect wifi devices. Buy this router connect the pc-s to thos router with ethernet switch. You need to set up ip addresses for the pc-s. The whole procedure is well written in the Linksys admin manual. I hope it helps.
Here is the router manual: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pdf/wrt54g_ug.pdf
If you dont need the wifi router (you dont need wireless connection buy this model: Linksys BEFSR41
If you need to connect more than 4 pc it requires a new solution. If all pc are connected with ethernet together, you need another solution.
