I've got a simple home network, with one Windows 7 Ultimate x64 desktop (wired), one Windows XP Pro desktop (wired), and two Windows 7 Home Premium notebooks (wireless).
The motherboard failed on one of the notebooks that belongs to my stepdaughter, so I removed the hard drive and installed it in the Windows 7 desktop.
