I think there may be the problem, you need to interconnect a crossover cable, you just used the normal to connect to a switch or router. If your modem / router has multiple ports, each connecting PCs on a port, esra way will create a network with your router. Greetings brother and tell us;)

machines connected to the router but nothing happens. I've also seen that should make a bridge between the connections and when I do I lose the internet

Well look, more or less do the following, and see what happens. I have youtube channel tutos whether if you could not run a hurry you a tuto, now that I do not go home and tomorrow I exams whether it would be tomorrow afternoon video. 
 
For now you can try to connect the two PCs to the router by independent, different ethernet cables to different ports RJ-45. Thus go through separate and later, if that works, talk about sharing resources. 
 
At first that really cost us a little, but I assure you we will have a great time with hehe networks. A brother hug, and you tell me.

There are machines connected to the router by ethernet cable different. I think we just need to set q to make the LAN work

Ok, then all great, do not worry about the config, when I have some time I'll make a video of how to set practical, I will use two computers that it may be easier to understand. A hug.

agree. XP Professional SP3 is 32 bit, 160 GB hard drive, AMD Sempron 2.7 GHz processor and 2GB RAM. While Windows 7 has an AMD FX 8350 processor 4.0 GHz (8 cores), 32GB RAM, 2 hard drives of 2TB each, and a video card AMD Radeon HD 7990 6 GB

Okay mate, lol because as you have not already running w7 on the other too, because I have in my laptop with intel atom only 1.4GHz and 1GB of RAM that are the lowest specifications and functions bn. I think you just gave good news hehe;)

Like no other reason why you do not have Windows 7 I am one of those classic people. my Windows XP I always worked without any problem however in 7 jump many posters on if I want to start the program, among other things. For my XP was always more comfortable but I can not use because my computer is very new parts and XP fails to recognize and therefore can not be installed
