Make sure that the Turn on network discovery radio button is selected. I didn't look at that. One Ultimate and the other Home Premium. In the Search bar type services. Definitely make sure that you are selecting the same encryption also.
Hey, I have been having a great time with Win 7 so far but I have run into a little problem. I went back to the machine that I was told had the Homegroup setup and found that the troubleshooter said no longer part of a Homegroup; one wonders why I was being told that the machine had a Homegroup setup when it was not? So all of these replacement machines were shipped with windows 10 however one of the laptops is for our security cameras and was up and running sooner than the next two. But it keep asking for my homegroup password, well I never did this before, it says I do have a home group, but I know I never created a password for it. This didn't hurt my network associations btw. Your method worked for my but only after several iterations.
I was having the same problem and in trying to figure it out, I noticed the time on the computer I was trying to connect had a date one month earlier than the current date. Names must be unique on a HomeGroup. After the frustration sank in all the way to the bottom I decided to re-install and up grade both machines. Second, I'm also having problems with HomeGroups but in my case, I can't add a second computer to mine. You can create a new host and password on any pc on your nertwork anytime as many times as you want.
The ghost disappeared this time and i was able to join hostgroup on my win 7 pc and share the printer too. This has happened only since I changed my Administrator password a few days ago. My problem is two of my 4 pc's 64bit can join the homegroup, but the other 2 gives me a error of: incorrect password. When I changed it, suddenly I could join the homegroup. Depending on your connection, check Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Here are the steps I took, but I'm not sure they were necessary.
Did you notice that where it says type the Homegroup password? Ive ran out of ideas, anyone got a suggestion? Then I laptop saw the new homegroup. I was using the default password supplied by Windows on the first machine. I have ran out of ideas, anyone got a suggestion? When I upgraded from Windows 8. You can help protect your homegroup with a password, which you can change at any time. We can share documents and printers, etc. All was fine under Win 7 but after upgrade to Win 10 my homegroup is broken and I've found no way to join or create a new Homegroup. You can use our previous.
I followed these directions and get none of the option listed. Yes this time I was successful in creating homegroup on pc I wanted. Let me know if you need any help with this. I guess the problem is figuring out which computer is the host. There, you can see your current homegroup password and print it if you need. I have 2 Win 7 machines.
And each time i go to join the network it asks me to create one. The only occasion where it would not is if you are in a domain, then the clocks should be synchronized to the domain controller. I have one more question before I could see my other computer through the network section of the File Explorer but now I can't. Guest Author: Steve 24 Aug 2015 John Riley. HomeGroup Password in Windows 10 basically carries an unusual set of jumbled characters that appears to be difficult but if you fail to memorize it, the sharing service offers you to view it whenever needed. Can I create a new Network independent of the original one, from my computer? If, for some reason, you chose Work, Public, or Domain, then HomeGroups will not work. The Workgroup network is really a completely different network than the Homegroup so there is no need at all to rename the Workgroup.
We have to mention that you might have to do this for all the computers in your network. But after awhile I get a message that says the Homegroup no longer exists and to start a new one. Finally, on a hunch, I changed the password on the first machine. I have also had problems with sending Outlook mail on my desktop and laptop. I of course had the same issue as eveyone else.
