Windows 7: Wired and wireless computers won't connect to each other

Wired and wireless computers won't connect to each other

First off, hi there

I've been trying to sort this myself for about an hour now with no luck. I've already searched the internet, used google and tried various things to get my network to work.

I've been trying to create a homegroup which my laptop (wireless) and my computer (wired) will be part of. They are both connected to the same router.

My wireless is called "BuckleyWireless" and my wired computer is connected to something called "VirginMedia478xxx". I'm not sure whether these have to be the same name for it to work so I thought I'd post this anyway.

I've checked the subnet mask for both computers and they are the same.
I've tried turning off the firewalls on both computers.
I've gone into advanced settings so that both computers are "visible" within the network.

My laptop is now visible on my wired computer but it can't actually be accessed for some reason.

But no luck with anything

Any advice or pointers in the right direction is much appreciated

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Do you have Windows 7 on both computers?

If not, you need to use a workgroup rather than a homegroup.

In that case, the link I gave you walks you through setting up a homegroup from start to finish.
