    Trying to set up a home network with 2 computers, both XP Pro and using a router for internet and network access. I've gone through the procedures several times. On computer 1 ("network" printer attached), when I try to "view network computers," I get a message that says that I am not authorized to access my workgroup. On computer 2, I can see both computers through the network when I "view network computers," but, when I try to see what is on computer 1, I get a message stating that computer 1 is inaccessible. In both cases the message also indicates that I may not have the required permission. I am logged on as an administrator on both PCs, so I think that shouldn't be an issue, but who knows!!!
