Networking Permissions

  Quegg 22:13 04 Jan 2006

Im running on XP, and am trying to set up a network with my xbox, which is obvously a relatively simple excercise. However, when i begin the new network connection wizard, it doesn't start up and, and hits me with the message:-
'Your user account does not have adequate permissions to set up a home or small office network.
To set up a network, you must have permissions to configure internet connection sharing, internet connection firewall, and network bridging'
All of this, and i'm the administrator, ive tried various solutions, such as setting up an inferior account which i've heard could help, and also safe mode, but no success. Any help would be much appreciated because i really do not want to format!

Look in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Network
and make sure all entries starting `No` have `0` values.

Is that XP Home or Pro? Have you tried from another account set up as Administrator?
