I finally got windows 7 all setup on this computer, but I cannot view my other computer through the network. I was trying to setup a homegroup, but it's not recognized. So I decided that sharing files and folders was enough for me, but I can't view either computer from the other.
To make this next part a bit easier to read, I will call the computers compA and compB.
Whats really confusing me is I can view computers on different network. I took both computers and connected to another network, where I was able to view the computer on that network (which is running vista). The vista computer was able to view and communicate with both compA and compB. compA and compB could, obviously, view and communicate with the vista computer, but could not see each other.
I started thinking that it was a router issue, but I checked everything I could think of to no avail. I have also searched this forum and completed every step in this Ultimate Troubleshooting Guide for Windows 7 HomeGroup Connection Issues
. Still no joy.
I don't know if this helps, but I have an Xbox on the network as well. The Xbox can use files (videos and music) from compA, but cannot see compB. Maybe this indicates a problem with compB?
Can anyone think of something that I missing?
BTW, both compA and compB are running Windows 7 32bit.
