Help with HomeGroup Issues, cannot detect other computers on homegroup

Hi ppl,

My home network has 4 computers(including mine) running windows 7, and all of them are connected to the same router/access point for internet connection. When I created a homegroup, and went to add the other computers, they created another homegroup and the other 3 computers are now in the same homegroup. However on my side, it detects no computers. I clicked "leave homegroup", and it detected no homegroup on the network. The other 3 computers are on the same homegroup and are able to share files and printers. I cannot join the homegroup when i click homegroup in windows explorer it only says there is no homegroup on the network and asks me to create a homegroup. Does anyone know a solution to this problem? I badly need to share the printers and files across my home network.

Hi,welcome to Seven Forums.

Make sure you all have the same default gateways,and that the prefered dns server ip address is the same on all the pc's.

Open your network and sharing settings, click on network and sharing,properties,choose ipv4,properties and make sure all the i.p's are entered correctly and match on the rest of the pc's(apart from the first one which is each pc's own i.p)

Not sure if this is the problem,hope it helps,and please reply with the results. Hope someone else can help you better

This Homegroup trouble shooting guide might help. If the problem machine is using a wireless connection try connecting that machine with an Ethernet cable and join the Homegroup with that connection instead.

Also make sure the time date settings are correct on all machines.
