    phone service and one wireless laptop)the desktops are hard wired to the
    router. after i set up a small home oroffice network with the wizard i get
    the-
    "<WORKGROUP> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
    you have access permissions.

    This problem is most often caused by a misconfigured firewall. Make sure
    all firewalls - whether third-party or XP's SP2 Windows Firewall - are
    configured to allow the lan as trusted. Here is a troubleshooter by MVP
    Hans-Georg Michna. Take the time to go through it and it will pinpoint
    the problem area(s):
