make sure that the internet connection firewall and authentication are turned off on the XP machine.  Also make sure that Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled.

Follow the instructions below.

Disable the ICF and authentication.

1.  Click on the Wireless Connection Icon in the bottom left corner of the computer screen
2.  Click on Properties when the Card Status Dialog box opens
3.  Click on Advanced
4.  Under Internet Connection Firewall make sure the box is UN-checked
5.  Next, click on Authentication
6.  Uncheck the 'Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network'
7.  Click OK


Enable NetBios over TCP/IP in WIndows XP

How about user names and passwords?

Since the computers are on a workgroup and not a domain make sure that all the user names and passwords match on all the computers in the workgroup.
