Do you just want to share between the 2 computers? If so you dont even need a homegroup

Let me know\

Edit: just noticed you say work group names are. You cant have a work group and a homegroup

Looking at your picture above you have your D-Link DSL-200 USB ADSL WAN Modem set to a home network type and your local area connection set to public network. These network types should be switched. Your local area connection should be set to home and your D-Link DSL should be set to public.

Homegroup is not needed for internet sharing. Homegroup only works when all machines are running w7 and is not required for any.
