Ok trying to connect desktop and laptop on homegroup network. Both computers are going through the same router. Both computer's time is in sync and the there is internet connection on both. Both computers are in the same work group. Both computers are running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I created a homegroup with my desktop just fine, but the laptop will not see it. I then created a homegroup with my laptop with no problems, but the desktop will not see it. I have double checked everything on both computers and gone the unhelpful troubleshooters.
The only difference I see between both computers is the name of the network they are connected to. The laptop says it is connected to "oliver router" which is the name i setup on my router. My desktop however says it is connected to "Network 3"...IT IS CONNECTED TO SAME ROUTER. Why would it have a different name?? If this is what is causing the problem I have been unable to find out how to change that.
I beg for any help
