Smoore, I'm having the same problem with my new HP Pavilion m7760n I bought on "Vista Day." The other three XP machines on the network see each other but not the Vista machine, and the Vista machine can't see the XP machines. All four have internet access with no problems.

Here's a suggestion I found somewhere. Go to: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=70582 and you'll be directed to a page where you can download a Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder (KB922120) for the XP machines. So far it hasn't helped me but I haven't had time to really work on it.

Good luck and I'd appreciate any help anyone could give me.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.

My problem seems to be solved, but time will tell. Here's what I did. I went to Windows Update and found 4 updates which were labelled "optional." One pertained to my monitor, one to my sound, and one was labelled "Atheros Communications, Inc. - Networking - HP 802.11b/g Wireless Network Adapter," and the last "Update for Windows Vista (KB929735).

Although I have Update set to automatic I installed the four and immediately without a reboot the XP and Vista machines can see each other.
