I have a real puzzling problem with homegroup and hope someone will have some suggestions.
I created a homegroup on pc A. Tried to join with pc B. Tried everything but didnt work. Then after about a year I reformated pc B and it joined the homegroup instantly, hassle free.
So I reformatted my laptop, installed same operating system but nothing. Tried many settings. I can see the other two computers and homegroup says available to join but after entering the password, it takes about a minute and then says "Windows cannot set up homegroup on this computer". Before this laptop I had another and it never could join homegroup either.
The laptop connects wirelessly to Belkin N1 Vision router. The other computers are connected to the router through cable.
Any suggestions would be very welcome and sorry if its too long.
