default load is that these machines are in "WORKGROUP" workgroup.  

To verify:
Right click My Computer or Computer (XP/7)
Select "Properties"
View "computer name,domain, and workgroup settings" (Win7) to ensure it's "WORKGROUP"
View "Computer Name" tab to ensure it is set to "WORKGROUP" workgroup.
Change Workgroup settings as desired - ensure they are all the same.
