Cannot get Network Discovery to stay on

Win7 Home Premium
Already did all this from other posts
  • DNS Client service started and on automatic
  • SSDP Discovery service started and on automatic
  • UPnP Device Host service started and on automatic
  • Function Discovery Resource Publication service started and on automatic
I also confirmed that IP version 6 was enabled.

Also checked and Base Filtering service is enabled

Only other things I know are different:
Windows Firewall will also not turn on
This used to work! I used to backup this machine to a networked drive which is mounted on my Belkin Wireless router.
I have 2 other Win7 machines that see it fine.
And I dont seem to have some Admin privlidges, that I need, even though the only user on this machine is Admin. Somewhere I read that Home Premium has some of these rights disabled? I have also tried all the workarounds to get all Admin rights, and that does not seem to help either
