Go to My Network Places and use the Network Setup Wizard to configure your network.

I have a home network to which a new Vista Home Premium laptop was just added. From the XP machine (connected wirelessly to the network) I am able to successfully ping all devices on the network. These include the router, a printer and my new Vista laptop (each connected wirelessly). I am also able to map a Vista drive from XP. From the Vista laptop, however, I can see the router and printer but not I CANNOT see the XP laptop. Any ideas how to fix this? :)
