I have a desktop with Windows XP and a desktop with Windows

Customer Question

I have a desktop with Windows XP and a desktop with Windows 10 on a network through a arris cable modem. The Windows 10 can see the XP and my 2 printers but the XP can't see the Window 10 computer or the printers. The printers are wireless and connected to the router. The XP computer works fine and has internet from a wireless netgear adapter. Any suggestions to connect the XP computer.

I tried this on my XP desktop and everything seems to be the same. It can see my network for internet access but does not locate any printer or other the windows 10 device. It doesn't even really see the modem.
