Yesterday my husband brought home his new computer from work which is set up to connect the company network through a modem (which he hasnít received yet). He asked me if I could log him onto our home network so he could check out the net etc so I clicked on the network icon then our network, entered the details and away he went, but today when he tried to go online the computer tried to connect but couldnít and didnít ask for any details. Now this is where I messed up, I thought that all I needed to do was check to make sure he was on the correct network so I went into -control panel-system-network-change and I changed the workgroup name form workgroup to our network name, it then restarted and his logon screen came up, he entered his username and password but was unable to log in, we have tried all night with the same results.
I have read a bit on changing passwords but am not sure if that would help as we didnít change anything except the workgroup name. The system running is XP but am not sure which service pack and am unable to check.
I am a little desperate as he needs the computer working before Monday, so any help would be very much appreciated.
