I have run the network setup wizard on the computers but can not see the workgroup when I click on workgroups. I get the following error: HOME IS NOT ACCESSIBLE: YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THIS NETWORK RESOURCE.  CONTACT THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS SERVER TO FIND OUT IF YOU HAVE ACCESS PERMISSIONS.

THE LIST OF SERVERS FOR THIS WORKGROUP IS NOT CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE.

All of the computers are assigned the workgroup of HOME.  I have cable modem with with wireless lynksis router but am hard wired with all three computers.

I need help setting this up.

Thank You

Running the Network Setup Wizard was your first mistake.. Usually causes more problems than it prevents..  I suggest you ck out my webpage on P2P setups and troubleshooting..

www.doverproductions.com

Look under the XP heading for P2P Troubleshooting..
