I believe the settings you are looking for are found here:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings

Good luck.

What router are you using?

Wireless connectivity problems

I cannot connect to a Linksys WAP54G access point or go through my Watchguard Firebox edge X5 firewall witha wired connection.

Disable the two services HomeGroup listener & HomeGroup provider.
Run -> services.msc -> stop services if running and then disable both.

4. After that, close Explorer window. Now type services.msc in RUN or Startmenu Searchbox and press Enter. It'll open "Services" window.

Here look for following 2 services:

HomeGroup Listener
HomeGroup Provider

Once you find them, double-click on each and change the "Startup type" to Disabled.

Apply the changes and exit from Services window.

The "HomeGroup" feature and its icon will also be removed from Windows Explorer:
