Windows 7: Cannot see homegroup computer and connect to networked computers

15 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 Bit
Cannot see homegroup computer and connect to networked computers

i have 4 networked computers (all connected through ethernet cables) They used to talk to each other fine. Now one (Call it KPC) is able to access all of the computers but none can access it. Another computer (RPC) says that it does not have permission to access it, even though i have all my file sharing turned on.

It used to ask me for a password and even though i would enter the correct password (the same on all computers) it said "logon failed: wrong username or bad password".

Also I have added KPC to the RPC homegroup using the password and it just doesnt show up on the RPC homegroup page. I really NEED RPC to be able to access KPC's everything (documents, printers etc) the rest arent a big deal at all. What happened and why did it just stop working??

Welcome to SF,

Does the problematic computer has any Security or Firewall software installed?

Can you ping the IP Address from another computer? If you need assistance on how to do this please let us know.
