Networking windows 7 Enter Network Password? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just got windows 7.  I have two computers I need to network hardwired through Linksys wired router.  Computer A is windows 7 computer.  Computer B is XP computer.  I cannot get Windows 7 to access files and devices on B, XP computer.  Both computer will access the internet with no problem.  When I try to access B, XP computer I get a box that says Windows Security, enter Network password... User Name and Password.  What is that about?  I didn't enter a password.  I need to know how to find out what the password is and how windows 7 will access computer B and its devices through the home network, Linksys.

    Thank you for looking at this post.  All replies will be greatly appreciated!  Help.

    What is Network Password?  Where can I find it on the computer?  I didn't enter a password so this must be something in the Windows 7 homegroup software.
