Please could anyone help me out on this one? For some reason my authentication profiles are greyed out and I'm sure this is what is stopping my home network from working.

It has worked perfectly fine before up until I accidently messed up my privelege settings on Windows.

I am running Windows XP Pro and the the client computer is running Windows xp Home.

I've been searching google for my problem but I havn't yet found a fix, I found out you need to be logged in as an admin to enable these settings. I am logged in as an admin though and I can't think of anything else that could be causing this problem.

Here is a screenshot:

It would be great if anyone could help me ASAP because if I can't get it working I've been told I need to switch my ADSL connection onto my Dads Computer, which means I'll have no internet :tazz:

Did you get this resolved? I guess I am unclear on precisely what is wrong? Do you have a network set up in your house?

This is strange, cuz I have been able to click on those before too, and now I don't even get the Authentication tab on either pc. What does it look like on the other pc?

Not sure if I'm catchin' whether you're sendin' bad vibes at me or something, but yes my network does work perfectly. I am actually messing with the settings right now to try and help. If you don't want it then I'll just figure it out anyways and not tell you. If this is just a big misunderstanding then I do apologize.

Cool :tazz: no probs. Didn't mean to get all uptight about things.

If you run the network setup wizard again is the stuff available again? Don't know if you may have already tried that.

Ahh, I just remembered why my tabs went away I think. I disabled IEEE in my bios. Check yours have you been in there at all lately? Maybe accidentially messed with something.

That authentication tab is for wireless authentication I believe. Are you having wireless networking problems? What exactly is happening anyways?

I dont't have IEEE settings in my bios :/

I'm just gonna forget about it for now, I have my internet running from the other computer. I need to reformat anyway so I'll just do that when I want my internet hosting back on my computer, I figure this is going to be to hard to fix so i'll just leave things as they are at the moment. I have the other computer running 24/7 anyway lol

Oh yeah, its not wireless I'm just using cat6 cables
