Unable to See Workgroup PC's

  BAC1-11 20:35 20 Mar 2005

I am running XP Home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router & Zone Alarm Pro.

I can connect to other PC's through 'My Network Places' but if I click on 'View Workgroup Computers' I get the message that 'The w/group is not accessable. You might not have permission to use the network....'. I am logged on as an administrator.

Switching off the firewall makes no difference

The confusing thing is it work fine last night and this morning. I haven't changed the config or anything today, just turned the PC Off and back on again.

I tried down power the router but that didn't help.

Sorted - I hadn't logged one of the PC's onto the LAN. I didn't expect it to take out the whole n/work
