Windows 7: homegroup woes

homegroup woes

i tried the wpa2 personal tip..no luck. home group has never worked well for me. i have 3 machines running Windows 7 pro or ult. all have identical (as best i can determine) networking settings. all have norton 360. all connect to an e3000 (2 wireless, 1 ethernet.) on a typical day A can see B but not vice versa (i very rarely have all on at once.) even when i can ping B from A it will still usually report no homegroup pc's available. sometimes i can't ping a machine and yet it shows up in the full network map. on rare occsaions, everything works perfectly.

this is hardly a complete list of the variable symptoms and this continues to be a frustrating exercise. have i overlooked something fundamental? this is supposed to be idiot-proof and i'm no idiot (a moron by last accounting, yes.)

thx roderunner. takes me back to my win2k days. very nice tutorial. presently A cannot see B. i map the shares set up on A from B just fine but they are available in network anyway. i like this scheme better because it will be stable--not the "what will i wake up to today" routine. maybe the real question is what is going on when you have one-way communications peer-to-peer? i'm an optics guy and, by Zeus, when A can see B, B can also see A.
