Stupid design of the software. Then, right click on the folder. Do you know what might be causing this? Now this ghost homegroup from my Win10 pc did not allow me to quit or join to a new homegroup after I reverted to original settings .....

How to Change the Network Location in Windows 8.x The procedure for changing the network location in Windows 8.1 is very different than in Windows 7. I had to create a new firewall rule according to this guide to be able to use their firewall with homegroup (setting IPv6 filtering to "normal" didn't help alone): http://www.f-secure.com/kb/15216 Mick http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/505929/please-help-network-discovery-keeps-shutting-off-and-cannot-leave-homegroup/

Some factors that may have an impact on this: 1. The desktop is Win7 Pro 64 as is one of the laptops. I'm sure it was a combination of doing everything on this post and then rebooting everything in the world. Well, your post got me methodical in my approach.

They will almost certainly not work if you selected Public. First, you will need to modify the settings of the current profile, whatever that might be. I am using KIS 2011. The best way to solve this problem is to change the incorrectly assigned location, detailed in the following section.

By default, Windows uses 128-bit encryption so that your data transfers are not easily sniffed by others. I had to reinstall windows on one computer, and since then, this computer hasn't been able to join the homegroup. The problem is that only a fraction of my library seems to show up. http://newwikipost.org/topic/hUZsnCw84yXHHpCX9dTXQY6gbIUxvhwB/Homegroup-Problem-Network-Discovery-Issue.html keithmthembo2 says: 6 years ago My problem is a little bit different.

You can connect with him on 7 Tutorials, Twitter, and Google+ or even buy his books on Amazon. One on a hard wired box, the other was a wireless laptop. I dont know what to do now. If you want to decide whether to keep Everyone as a Reader or change them to a Reader/Writer (or vice versa), read Step eight.

I then looked at her wifi properties under sharing and checked allow other network users to connect through this connection, but it says the specified does not exist as an installed Generated Thu, 26 Jan 2017 00:43:08 GMT by s_hp107 (squid/3.5.23) ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: Connection I've tried updating XBMC, but still no joy. I have checked all the settings, etc, per your article.

If either one has a homegroup, the other cannot see it. I tried reviewing all the different settings. After many complex process changes this works. I use the wifi card to access the internet and the router to share the connection with a laptop that part works fine!

Mohsen A. Who knew the clocks had to be synchronized. However, I found out that my router does not support ipv6. However, the minute I disconnect the Cat5 and put it on wireless connection, the laptop won't see the HomeGroup (it creates its own network "Network 2").

This feature allows you to stream multimedia files (pictures, video, music) by using Windows Media Player. When trying to open these files through "homegroup", nothing happens, but when trying to open through the "workgroup", a user/password are requested and no user/password combination works. Fine.

What I do have is: (Default), Dhcpv6DUID, and EnabeICSIPv6.

  • Many people say to just turn off IPv6 but that is not a solution.
  • Michelle says: 5 years ago I have a problem similiar to many others, at my office we have 2 laptops running Windows 7 Premium, and my desktop running Windows 7 Premium
  • The problem persists on multiple computers.
  • I have never paid attention till lately when i tried to make my own network, i do not get the option to select home/work/public/domain.
  • You are informed about this change and what it means for you.
  • Can you please advise?
  • I hopes this helps.

Recommendation: Turn it on for home or work networks. You can check the HomeGroup password on another computer and then use that one to join the HomeGroup. I have a Belkin f6d4230 v1. Thanks janrdoh, BUT how do I find the password?

I even searched for it. damn u windows 7!!!! Some services were not started on one of the machines, but even after starting, no joy. Stupid design of the software.

Router Supports IPv6 This is pretty much not an issue anymore, but just for the sake of covering all bases, you need to make sure that your router can support IPv6 What is odd is that the wireless connected laptop is on network "RexCity" and the desktop is on "Network 2," but they have the same Ipconfig 192.168.1.x. I tried to access the shared folders directly (Start, \\ but it gives me the message that "Windows cannot access \\\Music…", "You don't have permissions…". Now nothing is working.

BleepingComputer is being sued by Enigma Software because of a negative post of SpyHunter. Sandpit70 says: 6 years ago I have a desktop and netbook, both with Windows7. Any help is appreciated! But we did get the hang of it and we can explain it to you, so that you can set things correctly.

I can do the right click thing and other computers can see my files, but still, I cannot connect with other computers. I have 4 computers and luckily only one of them is experiencing issues. Now close the window that says "Share with other home computers running Windows 7." Step six: Navigate to a folder you want to share. Also, the PC that can't seem so share files can see and access the other two.

Any idears? I'm pretty resourceful myself but every once in a while I need to reach out and get a helping hand. I've done everything this guide recommended and nothing.
