Bugger.... ok do me a favour, I need to look up how to fix this (cant remember off the top of my head) In the mean time, please open up Device Manager (Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Device Manager) right click Microsoft Tunelling Adapter (or Teredo Tunneling Adapter) it should have a yellow triangle next to it, and upload a screen of the Properties screen

edit: try this to bring Teredo back:
1. Open command prompt with administrator credentials (Find CMD and right-click - Run as Administrator).
2. Enter netsh environment. Type "netsh" and ENTER.
3. "int teredo" and ENTER
4. "set state disabled" and ENTER.
5. Open Device Manager and uninstall "Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface".
6. Open command prompt with administrator credentials once again.
7. netsh + ENTER.
8. "int ipv6" + ENTER
9. "set teredo client" + ENTER
10. Open Device Manager and Scan for new hardware.
11. Select "Show hidden devices" from the View menu. You will now see that it is present without errors with any luck.

Ok im going to warn you now: it is entirely possible that your router and or network card doen't support IPv6 (which is needed for Homegroups) In which case there isn't going to be alot you can do.... However its also possioble that Teredo has become corrupted... so just skip step 5 and carry on. that should bring it back if it's possible

If it is incompatibility, then I would say it is more likely to be the network card, as the laptop seems to be handling it fine. I would recommend filling out your system specs under the User CP at the top so that an updated driver can be found if one is available

Nothing changed in the device manager.

I have to go now for a couple of hours. I will keep investigating after that. Will check if the router is ipv6 compatible. (3 years old...)

Let me know if I should check something else in the meantime

thanks for all your help, it is much appreciated

right two more things to try: grab the LAN driver from here: GA-EG41MF-S2H (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE

reboot and see if that helps.

If not, then try a Repair Install it won't wipe out your windows or files, but will fix any problems that may be there. for instance from a dodgy install.

I'm turning in for the night now. but post iback with your progress and i'll check in in the morning
