Can't browse the network after get out from a domain

r.bellotti
Hello to everybody

I moved several computer with windows XP from a network with a domain controller to another one without domain controller. In each computer I changed in the control panel the flag from domain to workgroup. Now, if I choose for the workgroup the same name of the old domain I can browse the network and I can see the computer connected; but if the name of the workgroup is different I can't browse the network.

Anyone can help me?

Bye

    I have shameless plagiarized this solution from http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Microsoft_Network/Q_22088715.html
    Because you might not have an experts-exchange account. Enjoy.

    network places -microsoft windows network -MSHOME -click on Computer A, it says:
    "Computer A 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"

    net view \\pcname results in error "System Error 5. Access is denied."

    "XXXXXXX is not accessible. You might not have permission to use
    network resource. Access is denied."

    "Workgroup is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to see if
    you have access permissions."


    "Workgroup_name is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource."
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/915107/en-us (guest acct)

    "Workgroup Name is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource."
    (turn on netbios over tcp, start computer browser service)
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318030/en-us

    click Entire Network, Microsoft Network, click the workgroup name, you receive:
    "Unable to access Computers Near Me. Workgroup is not accessible.
    The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."
    (pc is set as a master browser, or netbios over tcp not enabled)
