I have a company laptop set up to talk to the Domain at work.
At home I have a Workgroup LAN set up, with all pieces going through a router then out through a phone modem.
When I connect the laptop to the network, it gets Internet access but I cannot access it from the other machines on the network, nor even see them. Likewise the other machines can neither see nor talk to the laptop.
Oddly, when I connect to the router, the router cannot ping any machine!
Assuming the desktop is set at 192.168.1.50 and the laptop is set at auto (and gets ip 192.168.1.51) how can I get the two to see each other so that I can transfer some files.
(And note that I previously tried to temporarily configure the laptop to be part of the workgroup and that totally screwed things up until the company IT department reset the laptop.)
