Alright here is where I stand: 1. Wired Desktop x32 win 7 (build 7057) 2. Wireless Laptop x32 win 7 (build 7057) 3. Just put clean OS on to them this week 4. Connections > Properties > IPv6 Enable on both PCs 5. Both connect to Internet 6. Both use same router to connect 6a. If I go to my network & sharing center; click on "see full map" I can see both computers with a switch in between (I figure since one is wireless and one is wire) 7. Click Homegroup 'No other people in the home group' 8. At this instance both PCs are on 2 separate HomeGroups (how is this possible?) 9. Create HomeGroup > Change Advanced Settings > Turn on network discovery 9a. If I go back to this change advanced setting enabled button says "Turn off.... etc" 10. Click win start > type "services" chose the 'gear-looking icon one' > scroll to UpnP & SSDP & Computer Browser & Server & TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper made sure all were 'Automatic' if not changed 10a. step '10' allowed to change button to 'turn on network discovery' 11. Still both PCs cannot see each other in HomeGroup If you have any information, links, ANYTHING please post this is the only reason why I wanted to test windows 7 and now its has become an utter failure. Best information I have found so far is here: This site shows how it should be done Windows 7: HomeGroup Overview IPv6 Reference: Disabling IPv6 prevents creation of new HOMEGROUP : Windows 7 Networking : Windows 7 Beta : Microsoft TechNet Forums Services Reference: unable to turn on network discovery Side Note: I'm on spring break did really want to reformat the parent's computers and do all of this... this week:cry:... Any help would be much appreciated!
