Existing Homegroup is not recognized
We have 4 Windows 7-computers all sharing the same homegroup, everything works fine. Now out of the blue, one computer didn't see any other computers in 'homegroup'. He doesn't even see any computers in 'network', which is pretty odd. But its w-lan works, as I can enter the Internet or the router.
I thought, ok, just rejoin the homegroup, so i left it with that computer. But now he doesn't see, that there is already an existing homegroup, and wants to create a new one. Yes, during the process I had another 2 homegroup-comps running.
Why is that, how can i fix those things, without resetting my whole homegorup every time some computer can't recognize anything.
\\\Edit: Now my laptop, which is connected through wlan newly can't see any homegroup-computer's too, although he sees them under 'network'. if i try to change the homegroup-settings he says something odd:
"The computer belongs to a homegroup. It is not available, because you're not connected to the home network, connect to an existing network".
This is simply not true, I am currently connected, writing this posting, browsing the web, even accessing the router. Message still there after reconnecting.
Even the 'Network and Sharing' Center confirm, that I am currently connected to my home network.
