Sorry i wrote something wrong

It runs the troubleshooter, then goes to a network troubleshooter and says something about "some homegroup issues can be network related"

What is way weirder, is that my laptop is visible on both my main PC and my Media Center, in the network tab in explorer.

Simply my main pc and media center can't find each other/work together

Homegroup not working on all of them.

You cannot map network share from one pc to another? What's doing there?

Can the machine ping one another?
