    I had 3 PCs, 1 running WIN98 and 2 running XP Home in a
    Workgroup connected through my wireless network. All the
    machines were able to "see" each other and share
    resources over the network. One of the XP Home machines
    had the attached printer I shared with the other 2
    machines. I recently upgraded the XP Home machine (that
    shared the printer) to XP PRO, as well as upgrading the
    WIN98 machine to XP PRO. The 2 XP PRO machines can see
    each other fine. The solo XP Home machine cannot see
    either of the 2 XP PRO machines. I have tried everything,
    including running the Network Setup Wizard on the host
    and client machines (and continually removing the created
    Network Bridge" that keps getting in the way. I can ping
    all the machines. Just can't seem to get them into the
    same Workgroup. Anyone know of any issues involving
    networking Home and Pro together? I'm lost. All
    suggestions welcome
