Windows 7: Netbios over TCP not working (Home group)

15 Dec 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Netbios over TCP not working (Home group)


Iīm trying to configure a Home Group between a desktop W7 64 Ultimate and a laptop W7 64 Home Premium.

Reading the forums and MS instructions didnīt do, so I did an ipconfig /all on both.

In the desktop Netbios is not active, but client for MS network is checked in the adaptor, file and printer sharing also in the adapter.

Services show TCP Netbios as automatic.

Firewall is AVG, desabling it didnīt help.

From the desktop I can see the laptop, but from the laptop I canīt see the desktop in the network map.

Thanks for your help,
