I am using xp on all computers I am connected to a router

message.
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 permission. the list of servers for this workgroup
is not currently available.

Hi Rodney,

Make sure the XP firewall is disabled. The XP firewall is
only intended for direct connections to the Internet and
must be disabled on local area networks. Make sure all
other firewalls are disabled or removed. Sometimes
disabling doesn't always work.

Also, make sure NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on all
machines. Details here.
