Windows 7: "Some Homegroup Problems Are Network Related"

25 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
"Some Homegroup Problems Are Network Related"

So ... as short as I can make this:

My Windows 7 homegroup set up with a router attached to my desktop, and a laptop connected wirelessly, has worked great for a year. A guest from out of town visits with a laptop running XP and I was unable to hook him to the network. I disconnected my laptop from my routered network, tried to reconnect, and now nothing works right.

I have left my homegroup and purged all homegroup data (from regedit for example) from both my computer and my laptop, but I can't get anything to work right. My desktop sets up the homegroup fine, but it can't see my laptop and my laptop can't connect to the homegroup now. I have since been able to reconnect my laptop to my router and the 'net, but not to the homegroup (e.g., it can't print or see my homegroup printer).

When I troubleshoot, I get the titled message "some homegroup problems are network related." When I run the troubleshooter, it can't solve the problem.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro on my desktop, and Windows 7 Home on my laptop. Help?
