Windows 7: Homegroup no longer working...

08 Mar 2011   #1

W7 Ultimate 64
Homegroup no longer working...

Recently I discovered that the Homegroup feature is no longer working on my home network, which consists of one wired pc and one wireless laptop. Both machines running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 SP1.

Both machines show the Homegroup status as "joined" in Network and Sharing Center, but neither machine is visible under "Homegroup" in My Computer.

What I've tried (applies to both machines)...

Disable Windows Firewall (no 3rd party firewalls installed)
Leave Homegroup then rejoin
Confirmed all needed services are running
Confirmed IPv6 enabled
Network Set to "Home"
Disabled Wlan, using ethernet

Before this problem I had been using homegroup for over a year without incident. I should mention this problem seems to coincide with my upgrade to Service Pack 1, but I really don't want to jump to any conclusions at this point.

Any help or info is appreciated.
