Homegroup & IPv6

i have just installed windows 7 onto my netbook, it has joined a homegroup with my main PC (win 7 pro) with no problem, but i have a HTPC (win 7 HP) that i still cannot get to join the homegroup

i have updated the realtech drivers today, but it's still the same.

any ideas?

Is your Windows 7 Pro is set the same network name as your new Htpc?

Realtek drivers as nothing to do with normaly.

i've changed PC name to [name3]-HTPC & [name3]-PC (both on HTPC) but it's still saying that IPv6 needs to be enabled, from what i can see, it is

Thanks I am assuming it is ethernet, correct?

Sometimes "homegroup" and IPv6 have connectivity issues. You can test to see if that i s the problem, by creating a new network connection using "workgroup"

Workgroup setting:
Workgroup Name - View and Change

Should DHCP disable?
