    I am having problems getting my second computer to show up as a part of my computer workgroup. Both computers have WIN XP and are networked through a Linksys router w/4 port switch. They are both able to get internet access through my DSL. My problem is getting the network to recognize the second computer after running the network wizard. Please advise!

    What do you mean by "getting the network to recognize the second computer"?

    For starters, can each computer ping the other by by IP address and Name.

    Then they should have the same workgroup name.

    What version of XP and what service pack?
