I am trying to connect to an already existing wireless network, I can get on to the internet but I can't view the workgroup. Both computers already on the network are running on windows xp and the one i am trying to connect is also running on windows xp. when I click on view workgroup computers I get a message saying ,"Office is not accessible. you might not have the permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. A list of servers for this workgroup is not available." Does anyone know how to connect my computer?
Thanks
