I am having a hard time connecting to my Windows 7 from my Windows XP home edition. They are both connected to the same network, work group. I am using a actiontec modem and a belkin router. It is a wired connection. I am not sure if I have all the setting right or what. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Your topic title contradicts your post.

Your title says you can connect remotely, but your post says you can''t. Which statement is correct?

As both the computers are on same LAN, try using in built Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Tool in order to connect XP and Windows 7 computers together. If this doesn’t work, try using remote access services such as LogMeIn, gosupportnow, etc.
