Switched to workgroup for my lenovo laptop - now can log in


are you loging in onto the network? if so you'll need the network user account name and logon

if you know the logon name and password make sure your logging in to the computer user profile not the networked one.

typically the user name is Administrator. 2 accounts are created admin and guest, though most the time Guest is not activated.

if your really outa luck Try a program called Ophcrack :]
either use it as a bootup disk or run it google it sourceforge!

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?


On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

Network connectivity problem...


Most likely issue is no common server on the network to specify which computer has what IP address and associate that with a name. Bob's computer gets a different IP address each time he turns it on, and the same happens with Sally. But Joe's always seems to get the same IP, so everybody can always find Joe. Specifying static IP addresses on all computers is a beginning to solving this, then I would edit the hosts file on each computer to specify that Bob is at IP x.x.x.x, and Sally is x.x.x.x, and Joe is x.x.x.x, copy this hosts file to all computers, and edit it when new computers are added. Another solution would be to get a Windows Server that is doing both the DHCP (Assigning Addresses) and DNS (A computer program running on a server, translating names into IP addresses), all computers will ask the DNS server where Bob is, and get a response from an internal server that says bob is x.x.x.x
The issue you are having is the number one reason to get away from a peer-to-peer network.

You must have a network setup first

Then both the machines must be in the same subnet

for example PC 1 - 192.168.54.1 255.255.255.0
PC2-192.168.54.2 255.255.255.0

Both should be in the same work group  just click on properties in mycomputer to set a work group name this should be same on both machines

Now share your directories using sharing wizard

Good Luck

Setting up my HOME network! HELP!!!


Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.

Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"

needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.

Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.
