View Full Version : Home networking and Groups

We have five computers, three running Windows XP Home and two running Windows XP Pro, on our home network.

Two computers, one Windows XP Home machine and one Windows XP Pro machine cannot see other computers on our home network. They complain that group xxxxx is not accessable (where xxxxx is the name of the group all computers have been assigned to.)

From My Computer all PCs seem to belong to the same group.

Any suggestions. !!!

Check the XP Firewall. Try to disable the built-in Firewall.

Did you manually enter the ip addresses? on all of them? under the LAN icon?

If you select automatically obtain an ip address, it can change on every reboot/boot.
