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

Here, try this. Click start -> run -> and type regedit. Now click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System -> Current Control set -> Control -> Lsa. Now go ahead and click on the Lsa folder to open it. Now double click on the "restrict anonymous" file. Make sure you DON'T click on "restrict anonymoussam" file. Now see if the "value data" box is set to 0 and not 1. If it's set to 1, change it to 0. Now hit okay and then file and exit. Hope this solves it, if not, we'll try something else.

The "restrict anonymous" file in LSA item was set to 1. I changed it to 0 and rebooted. Nothing changed. What next?

Could you please give me the exact error message you receive when you try to access the computer. Also, could you check to see if that value is set to 1 or 0 currently.

Make sure that one of your computers has not changed itself to administrator like my friends did a couple of months ago. That article posted is very useful.
