Hi folks, I have a problem connecting 2 wirelses computers (1 desktop and 1 laptop) to a home group in windows 7. The 2 computers won't recognise a home group existing on the network and won't allow me to join one , only create one. I have tried the following: Disable the windows firewall and turn off protection in the microsoft essentials security software. leave home group / create home group. I have created a share on the network but the client pc wont see it even with the firewalls turned off. i checked they were both connected to the same wireless network, checked the times were syncronised (i just manually did this, don't know if there's another way). the PC won't even see each other in the network map. ipv6 is enabled Haven't tried to ping the other computer from one machine yet. I've not used windows 7 before and i'm trtying to do this for my father in law. This was so much easier in XP and vista!!!!!
