I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find a solution in the searches I've done.
What I did was upgraded my router. I had a Belkin B/G router and upgraded to a new Belkin N router. I configured the router the same as my previous router. SSID and key and everything so I wouldn't have to make any changes on my laptop. I know it's identical because I took screen shots of the previous router setup pages and made the new router identical in the setup.
Now when I try and access the home group it's broken. I can't view my other computer from my laptop but my desktop can see this laptop fine and retrieve files through the homegroup. I've run the troubleshooter with no success. I've left the home group with each computer, rebooted them and made a new homegroup, and i'm back to the same place. I turned off the router firewall and the desktop firewall and still cannot see it from this laptop. I called Belkin and of course they say it's a windows issues, nothing wrong with their router.
So what else can I try to get this homegroup working both ways again?
oh, my laptop is running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium and the desktop is running Windows 7 32bit Ultimate.
