Windows 7: How do I create a Wired Home Network ?

Hi,

Ok done that I just ping both PC's from one to another both are receiving packets with 0 pkts lost on both sides.

Here are the results using "ping Nomani-StdyRoom" from the BedRoom Pc:
pingStdyRoomWithName.txt

Here are the results when using directly the IP Address "ping 192.168.1.104" from the BedRoom PC:
pingStdyRoom.txt

And now vice versa using both "ping Nomani-BedRoom" and "ping 192.168.1.103" from the StudyRoom PC:
pingBedRoomWithName.txt
pingBedRoom.txt

No packets lost, so data is being transmitted.

I also tried adding the printer which is connected to the BedRoom PC in the StudyRoom PC but no joy, it doesn't detect it at all. Also HomeGroup on StudyRoom PC is still active, so I again tried to restart the BedRoom PC thinking it might connect on the restart but still nothing.

Any ideas, how to proceed further ?

Sorry I forgot to mention that I also have now disabled my Huawei Router firewall just in case if that was blocking it. I changed the firewall setting from Standard to Disable, just to be sure there is no firewall in the way.

Enable the firewall on your huwei and set it up as the veterans described.

Remove from Homegroup:

Leave a homegroup

Do this on both computers.

Select Home Network:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/w...1&v2h=win7tab1


Do this on both Computers Homegroup only works with Home Network selected on each computer.

Create a Homegroup:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/w...1&v2h=win7tab1

Create Homegroup on one computer only keep the password safe. THe other computer to join enter the password.
Homegroup Read/Write:

I have tried doing that many times. I have left homegroup on both, then created a home group on one PC and tried to join the home group from the other and vice versa. It just doesn't find the home group. And also both of my Networks on both PC's have been setup as Home Network. So, I have tried that before but it hasn't worked any ideas why it won't work ??

Thanks.

Hi,

I tried downloading the fix it tool but it doesn't work. It says you have to upgrade the tool and takes me to a new fix it site but that site doesn't have anything on Home groups.


Any other links that could be useful ???

Thanks.

No over thinking there we don't have to do an ipconfig or ipconfig /all look at default gateway do we, we have a fixed IP address.

Can you ping normani study room and normani bedroom and post results please mark them so we know which is which please?
That is just the point, there is no need to use a fixed IP for this router. It's adds complications to the network for no apparent reason.

And the following statement is the result of doing nothing, still the Belkin doesn't require a static IP as the first router will eventually give it an IP in the correct subnet. My point was that there is no reason to use a static IP just to make a router be an access point. Yes you would start by plugging in the DHCP server gateway router first, all lights on etc. then you can plug in other routers to the LAN, each one should eventually receive an IP in the correct subnet.

=tznomani;2779627]Hi,

As I told you before my two computers were not detecting each other even though both were shown in the status window of my Huawei Router.

So I took your advice didn't mess with anymore settings and just disconnected all the devices, shut down both PCs and then started the systems in this order:
1) Huawei Router (which is the DHCP server also)
2) Belkin Router (which is configured as an access point with IP Address: 192.168.1.99)
3) Started both PCs

Now both the PCs detect each other, here is the network map and network devices detected from my Stdyroom PC:
I do have three A/P's here at my house, no need to use any type of static IP's, I use DHCP reservation on the gateway router so each device gets the same IP.

These types of Homegroup problems are fairly typical, sometimes you can fix them, other times not so much. All routers would need to support IPv6 etc.

Certain chipsets with unapproved drivers can cause this problem although I've found ways around these problems in most cases.

There is this Homegroup trouble shooting guide, go through the guide and see if anything stands out.

There are a couple more tricks to getting the Homegroup to work like removing all files that reside at the PeerNetworking folder which can fix joining problems as well as problems with leaving the Homegroup.

Either way gives you a static(fixed IP) you did not in the first place that you give a fixed IP using DHCP reservation chev65. I don't have a cyrstal ball you know.
