Win7x64 set up home networking x 3PCs - mentor needed

Gentlemen. Let's understand something before we enter into a relationship here. Setting up a Home Network is harder than studying to be a brain surgeon. And don't argue. I'm "up to here" with this thing.

The scenario:

3 Home PCs
2 x Win7x64 Professional SP1
1x win7 home premium SP1

Wifi modem.

Follow this guide.

Turn off pass word protection on all machines and it "should" do everything automatically. As I have upgraded several boxes from XP to W7 I have fought the network. This guide did it for me, 2 W7, 1 Vista, 1 XP, cell phone, SAT box and the toaster all working together now.

Hello AaLF,

Your screenshot indicates that you are already joined to a homegroup. That's why you do not have an option to join one.

If you open Windows Explorer and click on Homegroup in the navigation pane, do the other computer joined to this same homegroup show up?

Do you see the other PC when you open Windows Explorer on the other PC and click on Homegroup in the navigation pane?
