I've been running a Homegroup successfully between my Win 7 Desktop & Win 7 Laptop for the last 6-8 weeks.
This is used primarily to stream music/videos from the desktop to the laptop/
Over the weekend, my laptop seemed to lose the connection, and after several reboots of both laptop & desktop, as well many attempts to set it up from scratch, the Homegroup does not appear as a valid group on the Laptop.
I set the group up on the Desktop, made sure the libraries that I wanted to share were in fact shared, but whenever I click Homegroup from Windows Explorer on the laptop, it informs me that no Homegroup networks are available, or something very similar to that wording.
Both machines have full internet access via my wireless network.
So does anyone have a clue what I'm doing wrong? This seemed so simple to set up originally, yet now it just refuses to play.
