Windows 7: Network Discovery property will not turn ON

Network Discovery property will not turn ON

My desktop PC is using 32-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, and my notebook PC is using 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. Both are homegroup members.

The network configuration of the notebook PC appears correct.
The configuration of the desktop PC is flawed - The Network Discovery property is OFF. All attempts to set the property to ON fail.

How do I correct this flaw?

If all else fails, you can always try a Repair Install.

My problem is solved.

I did not have to Repair Windows.

I systematically checked to ensuire the following were correctly set:
  • DNS Client service started and on automatic
  • SSDP Discovery service started and on automatic
  • UPnP Device Host service started and on automatic
  • Function Discovery Resource Publication service started and on automatic
I also confirmed that IP version 6 was enabled.

One or more of these actions corrected the flaw.

Kinda like what it said here,...These settings also need to be enabled in services for Homegroup networking to function properly.
Turn on DNS Client, Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Discovery, and UPnP Device Host services.

Which has already been mentioned in a few posts.
