Windows 7: Multiple homegroups

21 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64bit
Multiple homegroups

In this house there are 3 families sharing one accesspoint. (Fiber 25Mbit u/d)

How do i make multiple homegroups?
Or instead of being forced to join that family's homegroup, how can i make my own?

(I saw an old thread about this question but the answer about turn it to public and then back to home, did not help.)

You should be able to just make to different group names and have them join the one group and the others join the other group.
Multiple Homegroups? This is on an older thread as well. You should really google this stuff prior to posting a new thread.

Windows 7 home premium 64bit

(There came up a warning that since the old thread was so old, it recommended me to create a new)

I did google it, and looked through microsoft help thing, and tried it by force.
Windows 7 just wont have it.
If someone knows how, i hope it can be explained.
If there already exist a homegroup the only option windows gives is to join that group.

Im thinking there might be someone out there who has made a program i can buy for this purpose.
