I would like to obtain some information and advice as to
what I may be doing wrong and how to correct my situation.
Here is what I have:
I have a desktop running windows 7 home premium and
a laptop running windows 8.1 both are 64 bit. I have a
Lynksys EA2700 router for my home wifi but both the
desktop and laptop are connected to the router via Ethernet
When I create a home group on the desktop I can join it
on the laptop and see and share files that are on the desktop.
When I try to share files on the laptop from the desktop I get
a message that says that computer does not belong to the home group.
If I go the opposite direction and create the home group on the laptop
first and then go to the desktop I do not get the option of joining that
home group I only get the screen that wants me to create a home group.
Can some one tell me what I may be doing wrong or what settings
are off that may be causing this problem.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
