I am trying to connect to a workgroup with my laptop but every time i click on the workgroup selection it says that i might not have access permission, and that i need to talk to the administrator of that network. I am the administrator so all that i need to know is how to allow my laptop to view the wokgroup like all of my other computers connected to my wireless network. Does anyone have any idea as to how i could do this?
Thanks

It just says the name of the network not the name of a computer. It won't even show a name of any of the computers in the workgroup. This is the exact message,"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." Any clue asto why?
Thanks

the computer should be able to see itself. if not, have you enable file sharing?


The computer doesn't show itself in Workgroup - "Workgroup is not accessible"
