Windows 7: Homegroup working but not working

Homegroup working but not working

I have three computers, a desktop, and two laptops all running windows 7 ultimate. I am able to link the desktop and the E5500 but the D620 will not connect to the homegroup. The message I keep getting is 'password incorrect' and I know that it is case sentive.
I have checked ipv6 on the D620 and it is on. I have tried to leave the homegroup with all the computers and reconnect the homegroup, still getting error. I created the homegroup with the D620 and now the other computers give me the 'password incorrect' error. I know that the problem is with the D620.
Any help would be appriciated.

I just tried to reset my router and that did not change things. I have a feeling that the problem lies in the d620. There has to be a setting that I am missing. thanks for the input.
