Can't access my office network on Windows xp pro

I connected a new computer to our network, but I can't access other computers, or other computers can't access the new computer. The user name does appear on the computer group names, and the computer also is also receiving the shared internet sharing connection. The message that appears is "mshome is not accessible".....you do not have access permission

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
