Windows 7: Homegroup Problem IPv6

Homegroup Problem IPv6

I have installed Windows 7 on my PC and laptop.

One problem I have though is that I have created a Homegroup on my PC, I have a password and all seems fine, but on the laptop it does not recognise that there is a Homegroup on the network.

If I try to create a Homegroup on the laptop I get the message: "Your network connection must have IPv6 enabled to create or join a homegroup. To enable IPv6, start the HomeGroup troubleshooter."

The thing is, I DO have IPv6 enabled!!

Any ideas?

My PC and laptop had different workgroup names. There was something else too but I'm not too sure. The mod over on the windows7news forum solved it for me by taking control of my computer via TeamViewer4 and fixing the issues.
