Or, I can see and share files but I can't join a Home Group...
We have a home network with 2 Gig-Ethernet connected desktops and one laptop with a wireless network card running 802.11g. All 3 systems run Windows 7 - the desktops run Professional, the laptop runs Ultimate. We set up a Home Group and both desktops fell right in, but when I try to have the laptop join it says, you need IP V6 on your network to do this.
- I ran the Home Group troubleshooter to set it up; no luck.
- I went to the Network Connections window and checked the properties on the wireless card; IP V6 is enabled using defaults.
- When I do ipconfig -all, the desktop systems show an IP v6 address and the laptop doesn't.
I called D-Link, the router manufacturer, and they say it isn't a router problem; and in fact the router is fine and is serving IP v6 over Ethernet.
I'm not absolutely sure we need this, since I have the identical userid on one desktop and the laptop, and I can see and freely exchange files; I use GoodSync to keep a set of folders synchronized on both machines, and I just ran the sync with no problems. But - WHY am I not getting IP v6 on my wireless system? Is it the card? Does 802.11g not to IP V6?
Advice greatly appreciated.
