Windows 7: Seeking assistance with home network

07 Jul 2011   #1

Win7 Ultimate x32
[Un-Resolvable] Seeking assistance with home network

DanceHall (WorkGroup via wireless & wired router)
Table Dance (table top W7U PC)
Lap Dance (laptop W7HP wireless laptop)
Movie Dance (laptop Wxp wireless laptop used as DVR)

MovieDance sees nothing and no network.
TableDance sees nothing and no network.
LapDance sees Dancehall-> Self and TableDance
LapDance cannot access tabledance - unspecified error.

primary concern is getting TableDance shared so that i can share the printer on it.

Here is the current settings in TableDance (and you will find them a bit contradictory)

Any help would be appreciated.

and, if you please, don't tell me to search the forums.
because i did.
And i was unable to find anything helpful.

Are these setup on a win7 "HomeGroup" type of networking ? Or a Business type of windows networking ?

"Home" Network Work group by the name of "DanceHall"

as you can see in the pics though, my W7ultimate keeps saying it's set as public location instead of a home location when it's not.

What are the IP settings of all computers? I didn't see any mention of the IP addresses? Are they connected to a router / switch with internet access? If you have one "DENY" on any of the shared folders / printers, it will override all other settings. I didn't see any here in your pics...but just thinking outloud.

In the advance sharing setting try letting windows manage homegroup networks. It's the recommended setting.
