you cant connect to a workgroup per say, you belong to a workgroup to access resources.

Do you mean connecting to a Domain?

when you login to windows, you should have a domain field as a third option.

Or, you can check the advanced setting of the network connections:

Start-> Control Panel -> Network Connections
Then from the menu, select advanced, network Identification, then select the Change Button, in those fields it will be described..

You can ping the printers.  You can access the internet.  I'm baffled.  What's the problem?  


Please, rephrase the entire question and explain what you're trying to actually accomplish.  I would start by establishing your level of experience with Workgroups.
