I had a problem similar to yours. In the Network properties of one of the computers, "client for Microsoft Networks" was not checked. After I checked that, I was able to see and access both computers on the network. However, I can still get only one of two computers on the homegroup.

It may be one of those upgrade from Vista issues. Since only two or more Windows 7 computers can join in a homegroup together, some remnant of Vista may be causing a issue. You might consider doing a clean (format) install of Windows 7 on the computer that you upgraded from Vista instead to see if that will allow you to create a "Homegroup" afterwards.
