i have two laptops i am trying to link using homegroup.
i have had several issues and overcome most of them so far, but i've got a new one.
by turning off my firewall i can now get one to recognise there is a homegroup and offers the "join" option. when i try to join, enter password, and nothing happens. it says it "cannot connect this laptop to homegroup" any ideas why this might be?
I can see and view my folders through my small network via router, but it would be nice to get homegroups up and running, before i add my other computers to win 7.
so far i have had to reset through safe mode to enable drives again.
i have enabled lots of network services, and i have disabled my firewall (i dont want this to be permenant obviously), oh and my clocks are spot on
