Have a look here:

Why can't I join a homegroup?

Quote:
In Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic, you can join a homegroup, but you canít create one.
With Home Premium you should be able to create the Homegroup and join it from any version. Run the HomeGroup Fix It wizard and see if that helps.

The key word there is "Create". "Joining" one is a different story, at least according to the link I provided. I have never run either Starter or Home Basic, so maybe someone with some first-hand experience will chime in.

Can you post a screenshot of what the Homegroup setup looks like on the main machine? Do one for the main Homegroup page and also for the Advanced Homegroup Settings page.

How are the computers networked? A router? Do all the computers show up in the Client page in your router? (You may have to hunt around for the list.)
