    Greetings,
    Using the ConnectComputer wizard, I cannot connect a desktop running XP to
    the network.

    Here is my scenario: Server w/ 2 nics, wireless router DHCP disabled,
    switch, four connected computers using Vista. Desktop: No firewall, one NIC
    enabled, cable connection, obtain IP auto. Any thoughts would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Yes. The wizard finds the server, finishes all the steps, then: An error
    occurred when configuring network settings.

    Everything seem to be setup properly. I did some search on the Internet and
    the only thing I could come up with is when the workstation was part of
    another domain and the removal left over some settings.

    Try changing the port on the switch were the workstation is plugged.
    Sometimes this could be an issue. Since the other workstations connected
    without a problem, the focus should be on the workstation. You might want
    to see if there is a newer driver for the network card, or even remove the
    card and reinstall it.
