Win7 networking


N

Norm Chudacoff

I've been using a new laptop with Vista for a couple months,
wireless networked with a second laptop running XP and a
desktop running Win98SE.

I have always had fine two-way communication between XP and
98SE. I am able to communicate fine with the others from
Vista, but the 98SE is unable to access Vista. I haven't
tried the XP yet, but I have read that there is a problem
with Vista networking.

How about Win7? I have a free upgrade coming, and am
wondering if it is worth the effort of installing.

TIA

My home set up was Vista HP desktop and laptop with the later being wireless
connected via a router. My free W7 HP arrived today and the desktop upgrade
went well, and the network still working well with the laptop remaining
Vista HP.

Thanks, Bill. My free W7 HP is scheduled for delivery
before Dec 11.

How long did it take you? Evidently the comments here did
not deter you. Or are you prepared to go back to Vista?

What other OS(s) were/are you networking with?

Thanks again for your input.
