I had to upgrade all users on an XP box to "administrators" in order for
them to use the network to connect to the internet. This is not ideal
because the kids are constantly adding little programs that I'm suspicious
of. Was there a menu that I missed that would have let limited XP accounts
connect to the internet using the network?

I've been having lots of problems. Would comment that the Sony Playstation
console connected practically automatically, wish that Windows worked that
way.

One the Internet is connected to the PC correctly, then the "limited"
account should be able to use the "established" Internet access.

Are you using Interent directly connected to the PC oor with a
"router?"

I'm using a "DSL gateway router"

Pardon the topposting but my newsreader does not quote msgs from Gmail or
GoogleGroups. I don't know why.
