I am running WinXP pro SP2, and don't have the option to join a domain. I think there is something wrong in the group policy, but I can't find the problem. For Internet I am on a T1 thanks to my University. I shouldn't have any internet as far as I know because I'm not on the domain. I also can't use (although I think this is not so bad) windows firewall. Everything is in grey and the setting is turned off. I have been having problems ever since I reformatted and did a clean install of Windows.
