I have a windows xp laptop that I am trying to get reconnected to my network at the opposite end of the house. I used to be able to connect and view the computers but all that I can do know is use the internet on this network. I do not know how to view all of the other computers on my network. When I try to hit the view network group button it just says that I do not have access privilages. Does anyone know how to make my computer view this network?
thanks,
T-man

Goto Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK' and then type: IPCONFIG /ALL - please post the results here by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing Ctrl+C, and then pasting on this forum.

Basic Checklist for Networking
1. Ensure that all firewalls are disabled for all computers involved.
2. Ensure that all computers on the network are in the same workgroup.
3. Ensure that you have 'File Sharing' enabled - to do this, right-click on any Drive/Folder/File on one of the other computers, and select 'Sharing and Security...'. Ensure that 'Share this folder on the Network' is enabled.

Never mind, after I read your," Basic checklist for networking" I disabled the firewall and it worked.
Thanks,
