Windows 7: HomeGroups - 1 Laptop not visible on HomeGroup

11 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
HomeGroups - 1 Laptop not visible on HomeGroup

I have 4 laptops, LT01, LT02, LT03, and LT04 running Windows 7 64 bit.

All 4 laptops are visible (and inter-operable) with standard network.

However, 1 laptop, LT02, is not visible in HomeGroup on LT01, LT03, LT04.

Whereas LT01, LT03, LT04 are visible in HomeGroup on LT2.

Granted its not a real show-stopper for me but it is very irritating.

Done all the obvious thinks like setting up HomeGroup on LT02 and then joining the common HomeGroup.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
