    Hi,

    I'm using Windows XP PRO and have always been able to connect to my "WORKGROUP" computers but all of a sudden I get the message that I can not connect and they can't connect to me either.

    I am able to get on the internet just fine.

    Any HELP???

    Usually this is related to firewall. Have you made any changes to the pc that you mention?

    Will help if you post the exact message you receive when trying to access other computers on the network and visa versa.

    I don't know why, but it's working all of a sudden.

    "pc is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    The network path was not found"

    But sometimes, although very rare, I can connect to other computers on my network.
