xp media center and networking?

By RG11 ·
A friend called Dell and was buying a laptop that came with windows media center. The guy at dell said she may have a problem getting on the network at college if it has more than 5 users. Is this the case.. Are there any problems with xp media center running on a large network?

You can only run Media Centre on a simple Peer to Peer network and even then if you are connecting to it or another Home or Media Centre computer there is an upper limit of 5 concurrent connections possible.

If you are thinking about attempting to add Media Centre to a Domain it can not be added as this is not supported by MS with that OS. Your friend will have to go with XP Pro if she needs to log onto a Domain network type.
