I have a LAN witth several computers on it. All of them share files etc. All of them connect to the internet via the LAN. I just got a new Compaq with XP home OS. I set it up and plugged in the Cat 5. It connects to the internet, but will not recognize the other PCs on the LAN. The other PCs see the new machine, but when I try to access that machine I am told that I do not have the authority. All my machines are pretty common. Some have XP and some have XP Pro. They seem to co-exist on the LAN. The new PC is the first with PC Home.
I would appreciate any thoughts
