Multiple Homegroups?

Why can you not create multiple homegroups on one network? Or is this something that's just hiding from me?

Why would you want multiple homegroups out of interest?

Because I'm at a university and someone I don't know has already created one :P

Sure you can create another different homegroup. You might also consider creating a worklike workgroup (less trouble)

Go to Network and Sharing center. Change network type from Home to Public. Click Close.

Click "Change Advanced sharing settings". Click OK or Cancel

Change network type back to "Home" and then press Next. It should create a new Homegroup automatically. At least it worked for me.

Good luck.

Sounds like my most recent problem but in reverse. I think I have muliti-homegroups on my network accdentally and can't figure out A. how they got there & B. how to get rid of them and just have one.

Earlier, I was finishing all the last shares for my family net and noticed one user was not showing up in HG on the second PC or to the other users of the same machine. I ran HG troubleshooter and everything has gone terrible since then. I did discover that I had workgroup names inconsistant and fixed that. I really need to just clear all homegroups and build one.

I have same problem too. I have 2 desktops with Windows 7, in large office building where is many other unknown homegroups. So i have created new homegroup on 1st pc, then i tried to join with second pc with that homegroup

The problem is: there is another homegroup which i dont want to join and its name appear in joining window when i try to connect second pc, and homegroup name which i want to join is do not appear in join window, so is there any possibilities to choose homegroup that i want?
