Computer does not detect homegroup

Hello,

If have got two computer, both running windows 7 ultimate x64 and both connected to the same network(one by cable and the other wireless).

However, once i create homegroup on one computer the other one won't offer my to "Join it"(like here: http://news.techgenie.com/files/Windows-7-Homegroup.jpg)
It always says "Create a homegroup".


I tired to create the home group on one computer and join from the other and than created the homegroup from the other computer and tried to join from the first one. none of this worked


I hope i can get the solution for this!

Thank you in advance
