Hello,
I currently have 4 computers at home on my wireless network, but they all have different OS's. The two macs have different versions of Leopard, one of the PC's has Windows XP, and the other PC has Windows 7. I"ve managed alternately, and accidentally, for the one or bothe mac's to see one or both PC's, and vice versa, but I can't get them all to see all the others, which I need. Does anyone know how to work with all these operating systems to get them to work together?

Thanks!

[#0005ff]In my experience, once you've got the M$ systems to see each other and share nicely, the MACs will join in with the minimum of fuss. Set the W7 system up first and leave it some time before deciding you did it wrong because you may not have done. It takes longer than XP to identify other computers for the first time.[/#000ff]
