In your first post you posted the picture and your network is listed as "Public Network".

It doesn't mean its open to the Public, fwiw.

Im not telling you to change it TO Public Network, to create a homegroup you need it set to "Home Network"

Well, it looks like it's time to spend some bucks at the computer store to get this done.

For home you dont want a public network. You first have to make it a public network; then change it to a home network by following the instructions above.

You should not have to spend money to be able to network the 2 as long as their are proper connections for both.

What is this question about?


Solarblast you should choose Home Network only that is trusted. Public is untrusted. Forget Public and Work.


Re-miss of me you should remove the homegroup first see below:

HomeGroup: frequently asked questions

Choose Home Network by clicking on blue Public Network text and choosing Home.


Then create Homegroup on one computer and join the other computer by entering the password given by the first computer.

This isn't exactly rocket science dude. The computer store won't help with this.

This has to be about the easiest thing you can do on a Windows machine.

Follow directions and it will work.

Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

Homegroup - Create

OK, I changed "Home Network" to Public. A dialog appeared shown in the attachment. What am I supposed to do there? Use what's below "Change your network settings"? If I press Public network, it gives me the three choices again, Home, Work, Public.

Select Home then write down the password.

This is the password you will use to connect another computer to your homegroup
