  1. You never changed the workgroup. I need help with joining an EXISTING workgroup… this video didn't help at all! PS. Fix your audio!

  2. Ok, very nice.
    But can you tell me, how would you configure this on Windows XP,
    I've almost done it, i can see myself from external PC in which Windows 8 installed in. But i can't see them, from my PC i have Windows XP

  3. Yes I have my workgroup now – I have one Vista PC and one Windows 7 – they can see each other but not connect because it's asking for user name and passwords which do not exist.
