    Hello, and thanks for any help.

    Just got my MBP and lovin it! I want to connect to our home network and I cannot seem to get it to work. I called AppleCare and they were clueless as to how and why it wouldn't work.

    Can anyone provide a solution? All machines on network are Windows. I followed the instructions but when I view networks, I cannot see the specific workgroup I want to join.

    Mac X 10.5
    PC's are already seen within the Network Neighborhood in windows.

    Are you connecting to a wireless or a wired network?

    I'm connecting to a wired network. It's P2P. There is no server. I cannot get the MBP to see the network. It works on the G4 and iBook using Tiger, but not with 10.5.

    Go into System Preferences, Sharing and make sure file sharing is checked. If it is, the windows computers should jsut show un in the left side of finder in Leopard.
