I have two computers in my room. The operating system of one is windows XP and another is windows 7. I want to make a homegroup connection between them. But in Windows 7 when I want to setup a homegroup, it tells, "Share with other home computers running Windows 7 ". In the image it is marked by a red rectangle.
How can I establish a homegroup connection between two PCs, one using Windows XP and another using Windows 7.
Establishing HomeGroup connection between 2 computers
To access network connection, Go to task tray and double click the 2 lighted little windows there. select properties then click the Internet protocol (TCP/IP). Hit properties and use the following IP address and enter this respectively, 126.96.36.199 (hit enter twice). Do the same thing with another laptop, and replace this with 188.8.131.52. In order to connect via peer-to-peer connection, you need to have a spare Crossover cable. That's it, it will work fine.
