OK, stumped but I'm pretty much a novice on networks.

3 PCs on the home network, desktop wired to the router and 2 laptops connecting wirelessly. Can't seem to create a homegroup (although used to have one) and can't get all 3 PCs to see each other in the network, desktop sees the laptops, laptops see each other; neither laptop sees the desktop. Tried a lot of the more common tips and tricks on the web without success.

At this point, I really don't care if I connect to the desktop through the homegroup or the Home Network, just want to connect.

I know most of you are way more tech-savvy than me; anybody got any ideas of something to try?

Thanks!

I'm just a little confused. You say you have 3 machines on your network. Two laptops and one desktop. The desktop is hardwired to the wireless router. All three machines have the same System Settings except the computer name is different.

Laptop 1 can see and talk to Laptop 2. And Laptop 2 can see and talk to Laptop 1. Talk to means that they can see each others files and directories.

Desktop can see, but not talk to, Laptop 1 and Laptop 2. But both Laptops cannot see Desktop.

All three have no issues accessing the internet, is that a true statement?

If you bring up all three machines in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System all look at the 'Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings', are they the same (except computer name)? AND are all three machines set to "HOME NETWORK" in the Set Network Location (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\HomeGroup)?

I would think the culprit is the Desktop because it is the only machine NOT broadcasting its presence on the network. So I would concentrate on the Desktop's Share settings (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings). Make sure you turn on Network Discovery and File and Printer Sharing.

These are just suggestions. I do not run a home network nor do I have network administrator knowledge, but I have multiple devices all connected to my wireless router.

Good luck

In most versions of windows there are "network and sharing" settings, which are automatically set up. However, only on wireless networks. With a wired network it often just sets itself and doesn't give you a choice.

It definitely sounds like the Desktop is not letting itself be known to the rest of the network, which is why it can see the laptops, but they cannot see it.
