It does not matter that computers are wired or wireless to join a homegroup, so we can rule that out. It is unlikely the firewall would cause you to not be able to join but I am always wary of firewalls and usually in cases like this I disable them temporarily (normally you can do this for 5mins) to test if this has any effect. If you are absolutely certain you are using the corrrect password you used when creating the homegroup you will need to look at your router and make sure everything is correct and that in network view under my computer, all your PC can "see" each other. Something like below....
