The one that was displayed when you crated the homegroup for networking. It is not your user name and log on.

You have to be connecting using something. Its either homegroup, workgroup, etc.


The user name is whatever you created then.

I cant tell you what password you used. Whether it is a workgroup, or a homegroup, you set it up and were shown (or you put in) the network password.
