Cannot join any workgroups or domains in XP
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am trying to set up a small network with my roommates here at school and for some reason my computer is giving problems.
We are using a linksys wireless routers with 1computercconnected directy to it via ethernet, and 3 computers are using wireless LAN cards. I am one of the computers on the wireless cards. The 3 other computers can see each other, but I cannot. I get the internet finally through it, but still can't join their workgroup for file sharing.
When I go to change my network workgroup (default its set to MSHOME), it is greyed out and says "You can change the name of this computer. You must install networking before you can change this computer's domain membership." I have all the windows components installed I think... but I don't know if I'm missing one for some reason? I'd appreciate any feedback you guys can give me.
I've given all of my remaining points for this question. (160) Thank you.
