Ok so we are setting up XP Mode for some clients. I have been able to join XP mode to my domain, in fact i'm logged in one now. First things first the network is on the 192.168.1.x, so naturally i try to hardcode the ip, found a spare slot (192.168.1.45) left the dns blank because i don't really need it at this time, then try to join the domain. It prompts me for credentials, i enter them, then i get an error that it can't find the network. I double check with the hose machine, same default gateway, tried entering my host machines dns, nothing. I loose internet upon changing ip (obviously). I can't ping anywhere, not the router, the host computer, nothing. I can't ping the VM. I'm really at a loss now, i had no problem with my VM here at the shop, any ideas?
