    In WinXP, I am connected to the internet fine, but When I go to Workgroup to connect to my home server, it doesnt show any computers on the LAN. My other WinXP machine connects fine. Also, both of my macs connect fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anyone who has worked with networking knows how it can be annoying to have a network set up, and all but one computer will connect.

    Are all of the machines on the same Workgroup name?

    The two Windows defaults are "Workgroup" and "MSHOME". Mac OS X is defaulted at "Workgroup", as I recall.
