I can’t see other PCs on the network

I have a home network with 2 other PCs, and we all operate     windows OS but different versions (I use windows 7 but they use XP), now I can't see other PCs or even access them on the network even if I wrote the IP of that device in the address bar.

Taking in consideration that we all have a shared internet connection and it is currently working smoothly.

When I type the IP address of the PC, I get this picture:

Error:

Windows cannot access\192.168.1.22

Check the spelling of the name.Otherwise,there might be a problem with your network.To try to identify and resolve network problems,click Diagnose.

As a possible solution of your problem about network in Windows 7 and Windows XP, this is tips what you are going to do, first you must select your network sharing to HOME or WORK, and make sure that the network discovery in Windows 7 is ON, you find it in CONTROL PANEL , locate NETWORK SHARING CENTER, click the CHANGE ADVANCE SHARING SETTINGS, and then restart your COMPUTER,

Another solution is you can manually configure your IP ADDRESS to easily communicate your computers.

What is the result when you click on the Diagnose button? Try to check on your network connection or call your Internet Service Provider if you think you are doing the correct process. And also, check on the Firewall settings on your virtual machine and see if it's interfering with your connection. If it is, then just turn it off and try to access other PCs connected to your home network.
