This is hard to explain but please bear with me as this problem has
gotten to be quite an annoyance.

I have 2 pcs. 1 (laptop) I use for work and one home desktop pc.
When I bring my laptop home and connect it to the network, I am unable
to see or connect TO other pc's on the network. I can, however,
connect to my laptop FROM other pc's on the network.

The reason for this is because the PC's on my home network are all
setup to logon locally to the machines. My laptop, however, is set to
"Log on to" (at the Windows login screen) my companies domain name,
not the local pc itself.

Is there anyway I can allow my laptop to access the pc's on my home
network?

I hope this made sense, more importantly, I hope someone can offer
some advice.
Thanks.
