Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2 GHz / 3038 MB
I've been using Win XP Pro all the while until i change my laptop and now using Vista Home Edition. I connect to a LAN in my office with the same workgroup defined. In this workgroup, I have 3 XP Professional, 1 Vista Home Edition and one Windows NT 2000. I can access the other win xp computers in the network but not the windows NT. Actually I cant say, cannot access windows NT computer. I can access it but it prompts me username and password. I even get the same prompt when im using my old laptop that runs on Win XP pro. As routine, I typed in the username and password accordingly using my Vista Laptop but it says that the username and password are incorrect. i try to access the windows NT using my old laptop again and does the same thing. I can get to access the windows NT. Question is why i cant get to access windows NT using the new laptop? Pls help as i had tried everything i can. Thanks.

Let me know if it works, it's just a guess.

Right click on Local Area Connection, left click on properties, authentication and uncheck authenticate as computer when computer information is available.

I remember reading something about disabling kerberos authenication in favor of ntlm on the vista box. Google it for more info.
