Windows 7: IPv6 and Networking Homegroups

IPv6 and Networking Homegroups

I am trying to connect using homegroups, but am new to Networking; not sure where the problem has originated. I am operating Windows 7 on a desktop and Laptop through wireless connection - with AVG virus software currently.
I have checked my IPv6 connectivity and it states - no internet access; Please advise how to turn this on, or step by step instructions to help as this is my first time using.

Hi and welcome Latherton

There are many things that could be causing that. It could easily be AVG. It could be homegroup itself.

Can you tell us more about your network setup

router, cable modem, pc's wifi cards, etc


thanks

IPv6 is used only on the LAN, it says "no internet connection" for everyone.

It works perfectly when it looks like the first picture.

You just need to make sure it's check as enabled like in the second picture.

Although you might need to give AVG firewall some permissions to work correctly.

Go into Advanced Network settings and set Homegroup up like in the third picture.

Thank you, it is checked as in picture above; I am a very new user and know that I am missing details. My laptop is currently set up through a wireless linksys router. If I remove AVG will it help?

For more details have a look at this Msoft link.
Share libraries with your homegroup

AVG may cause problems, you might want to disable it before you set up the network.

I am using AVG 9 Anti-virus on several networked machines (x64 and x32) and none have required any changes with AVG to access each other or the internet.

Have you set both computers to the same workgroup? At least then you would know if your network fundamentals are sound and you can isolate the issues to homegroup.
