Re: Vista Workgroup help!

SO we bought a new dell with vista 32 biz on it. We have a workgroup
comprised of 4 xp machines. One of them is the "server" basically a
share that we use to run a program on all the clients. They are all
networked with a cisco 8 port switch. There is no domain in this setup
either just the switch and the other pc's. I can not get the vista pc
onto the workgroup. The switch shows no link light from the new pc and
the pc acts like there is no cable plugged in. I'm sure all the hardware
is working too.

Any ideas??

Bad port or cable.
