I have two new XP SP2 machines that I'm trying to join to the local workgroup. I get the access denied run around when I try to browse the net work. I can ping other boxes by both the computer name as well as IP address. I've made sure that firewalls are off, NetBios over TCP/IP is enabled. We are using a Netgear FVS328 doing DHCP so I changed from Automatic to static IP address and back again with no luck. The workgroup name is fine. Also if I know the name of the computer I can get to it by name and access the shares it is only when I go to the workgroup that I'm denied access. The only thing I haven't tried yet is removing the NIC and rebooting and having that reinstall.
