Windows 7: how to make a homegroup?

Well I am calling for help now from other members. I cannot see how to delete the Multiple networks Work Workgroup so that we can create a new Home Workgroup. I keep coming to a dead end. If it were my PC I would take a few chances but I am not happy about giving advice unless I'm fairly sure it will work and as I can't recreate the set up on my PC's I can't test things!
Anyone like to join in and help please?

I seem to recall that Multiple networks was a bit of a problem on Vista but I can't quite remember!

You just need to disable which ever adaptor is associated with the Unidentified Public network. You can do this in Device Manager or go to the Network and Sharing center then to "Change adaptor settings" and disable the extra adaptor there.

There might also be a default gateway problem but I'd have to see your ipconfig /all to get that straightend out.

Ok first off you should not need to go into safe mode to get your ipconfig /all report, I can't imagine why that was required but it's not normal. Lets take a look at your ipconfig results.

According to Wiki you are in Manila in the Philippines. From what I'm seeing here you aren't using a router?

You are also showing two different subnets which is why Windows was showing the unidentified network. You also aren't showing a default gateway, you can not create a network with out a default gateway.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do here but your source "ISP" or otherwise is not working correctly and certainly doesn't look normal from my point of view.
