Hi All
Fisrt post!
I have a home workgroup based network with 2 existing XP Pro based PCs. I have now built 2 XP MCE PC's that I wish to connect with the workgroup, but not matter how many times i run the normal Network Setup Wizard etc I cannot get the MCE PC's to connect to the workgroup. Checking the settings on the existing XP Pro PCs I note & recall that I ran the Network Indentification Wizard on each before they too would recognise each other. Looking at the same settings on the XP MCE machines I see that the Network Network Indentification Wizard (Network ID button) is greyed out.

Any one have any ideas whay I cannot run this Wizard on the MCE machines?
All workgroup names are the same, I am logged on as Administrator on each PC & they can ping each other.

Many tks
