Win XP Machine on domain wants to connect to workgroup
Posted on 2002-05-13
I have a laptop(running Windows XP)at work which is connected to my office domain.
At home I have a wireless network with machines running XP as well. They are all in a workgroup called 'home'.
In my home network I have shared several drives and it works perfectly when working on my home machines, but as soon as I try to connect my laptop from work I run into problems.
How do I connect my laptop (which is registered to use my office domain) to my workgroup at home? Currently I can't even connect to my shared network drives with this laptop.
I plug in my wireless network card into the laptop - the laptop recognizes the network and I get the bandwidth, but I can't connect to the Internet through the wireless network and I can't connect to any of my shared network drives. Since I do this switch every day (when coming home from work) I don't want to exit my domain since I then have to have an administrator for the domain adding me to the domain every day when I come to work ;(
