Win7 Cannot join homegroup wired and wireless

Q: Win7 Cannot join homegroup wired and wireless

Just got new house, and putting together a new win7 homegroup network (new isp, modem & router)
I have the wired computers(3) connected through the router to homegroup called network3. And they can share file, and printers just fine.
The wireless laptop connects to the router though a wireless connection called 'wireless network' it can get on the internet just fine. but it (laptop) can't join the homegroup the wired computers are connected to. It ask to connect to the homegroup by name (network3), when I click "choose homegroup and sharing options" in the Network and Sharing Center screen. I enter the password that works on the other wired computers, but them I get the dreaded balloon saying "Wndows can not set up a homegroup on this computer " pops up, then just sits there.
How do I get the laptop to join the homegroup? There is no other network shown other than 'wireless network'

Preferred Solution: Win7 Cannot join homegroup wired and wireless

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Win7 Cannot join homegroup wired and wireless

try this first: make certain all computers are scychronized to the same date and time.
I know that sounds like a "given," but I had a smiliar problem in joining my workgroup.
The Win7 laptop could see the other computers but when trying to connect, it asked
for the network password & identified my computer as belonging to a domain (which
it wasn't).
I tried everything. My time was the same on all the systems. Then I noticed the Win7
system was a day off. I fixed that and walla! Win7 could not only see the other systems
but also, connect--a two week search & trying to connect, solved by the simple
thing of making sure all computers had the same time & date.
Also, you need to have the "everyone" group active, with full rights.
And user accounts with the same name and password on each system.

If those things don't work, hopefully others will answer with the answer.

My environment consists of:
Desktop running Windows 7 Pro x64
- Wired connection to Verizon FIOS Actiontec MI424WR
Laptop running Windows Home Premium x64
- Wireless connection to same router
Laptop running Windows Pro x64
- Wireless connection to same router

The two wireless devices can connect to homegroup created on either wireless device.
Neither wireless can connect to homegroup created on wired device.
The wired device cannot connect to a homegroup created on either wired device.
I've moved one wireless device to wired and then I can connect the desktop and the wired laptop via homegroup.

The problem is clearly the Verizon Actiontec router/modem.

Ideas for getting this to work?

Just purchased a Win8.1 and set up a first-time home group. But my old Win7 home premium just cannot be coaxed into joing it. Have tried everything without luck. Do they actually work together?

A:Win7 will not join Win8 homegroup

Hello Hunzeker,

Oh yes, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 can be in the same homegroup. I have one setup with my Windows 8.1 and a Windows 7 on a virtual machine.

As a test, have all computers leave the homegroup to be able to start over fresh.

Afterwards, create a homegroup in Windows 8.1, and join the homegroup in Windows 7. Double check the details in the tutorials below to help make sure everything is set properly for the homegroup to see if that may help.

Homegroup - Create in Windows 8

Homegroup - Add Computer or Join

The 8.1 laptop says it detects the homegroup and prompts me to join it. I go thru the steps, including the correct password. Then, after a minute or so of looking, the laptop says it no longer detects a homegroup on this network. I can't find anything wrong. All the settings seem to be correctly set. What am I doing wrong?

Or how do I just make the XP box know about the Win7 box? They're both fed from the same router so should have IP addresses in the same group - but although the Win7 PC can see the XP PC, it doesn't work the other way around.

AFAICT the only place (in XP) where I can view other computers is in my XP workgroup. But Win7 uses homegroups which don't seem to be quite the same thing. A workgroup seems to have a name but no password whereas a homegroup seems to have a password but no name.

What am I missing here...?

The computer that originally created the homegroup on my network is no more. It seems that because of this that my new computer is unavailable to join the homegroup that already exists. Other computers that were part of the homegroup before the "host" computer died are still part of the homegroup and able to share files, etc.

Is there a way to connect a new computer to the homegroup if the original host computer is no longer part of the network/ no longer exists?

A:Unable to join homegroup, homegroup creating computer is no more

The original computer is not required as long as you have other computers that were part of original homegroup. Boot another computer that was part of homegroup and then enter the password and it will join. I no longer have the original computer that was used to setup the first homegroup but new ones join properly when others are active on network.

I get a "Homegroup encountered an error" message when I try to join my laptop and desktop to a homegroup. It does not matter which one sets it up and which one tries to join. It errors in either direction. I have tried leaving and creating, no use. The desktop is wired to a Belkin 300N router and the laptop is wireless. The desktop uses a static ip address and the laptop uses the router's dhcp server. Both computers are on the same subnet and can ping in both directions. Sharing via workgroup works fine. Why won't this software do it's job?

The desktop is a fresh install of Windows 7 professional 64 bit and the laptop has been running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit for 4 months. I have followed the suggesstions that I have found in the forums and also the troubleshooter with no success. Any ideas?

A:Homegroup encountered an error / This computer cannot join a homegroup

I got it to work after I uninstalled McAffey, deleted the static ip addresses, and used wireless to connect both pc's to router. Not sure which one did the trick but I know that if I try to use a static ip address on my desktop/media server, homegroup disappears. I think its not all that great anyway, I just wanted to justify the $50,000 i just spent on classes to get my Bachelors in Networking.

I'm using the correct Homegroup password.
All computers have discovery on.
All computers have IPv4 and Ipv6 running.

Let me see if I understand, your home is pre-wired with ethernet (very nice) It seems that you would only need the one wired/wireless router, with both PC's connected. Why are you using a switch and second router?

1. I tried going to network sharing in control panel on the desktop. I created a new Homegroup and it gave me a password. I then went to the control panel on my laptop and went to network sharing and then went to homegroups. Now from my reading, I should have an option that says "join homegroup". I do not have that option, only "create Homegroup".

2. I have tried going to the folder I want to share on the desktop. Still cant find it on my laptop.

3. Removed AVG. Still cant join.

A:Cannot join Homegroup

Welcome to SevenForums, kbussen.

Instead of using Homegroup, try switching all the machines to the same Workgroup.

(There seem to be a lot of problems with Homegroup use, mainly they seem related to IPv6.)

From an earlier posting I made:







Quote:
I set them all in the same Workgroup by going to Control Panel (set to view small icons) System -> Advanced System Settings -> System Name. There change the Workgroup name to be the same for all computers.

In Network and Sharing -> Advanced Sharing Options click the top option for all but the bottom two. Turn off Password Protected Sharing and under Homegroup Connections set "Use User Accounts and Passwords to connect to other computers."

On the systems, set up the shared folders and permissions you need.

A:Can't Join Homegroup

This problem comes up pretty often but it's usually easy to fix just by removing all files in the Peer Networking folder. In your case this would be your Windows 8 Pro machine but also check the Windows 8 laptop.

The link below describes the process in more detail and shows a picture of the PeerNetworking folder. You must also go into folder options and click the "show hidden file and folders" so you can see the AppData folder.

I bought my pc from a guy who built it. I found it on Craig's list. He has it it in a home group and I don't have permission to leave it. He somehow still has control over my computer. I have no way of contacting him. How do I get control over my computer. Everything I try I don't have permission or authority to do. I am supposedly the administrator but he somehow has more control than me. What do I do?
 

A:Get out of homegroup that I did not join

Reformatting the hard drive will put the computer in the same condition it was in the day it was shipped from the factory, which will solve your problem. Or you could go deeper and wipe it clean with 3 wipes of wiping software which is what the Department of Defense does when they get rid of computers. There is free wiping software available, but I have no experience with them. I know 1 is called Derricks Boot and Nook (DBAN) and I've heard good things about it. I personally use paid versions: Wipe Drive and Acronis True Image 11. Just be sure you have all the software for the operating system and all the discs for the programs that are in your computer and be sure to backup all your files before reformatting or wiping your computer because reformatting and wiping your drive will delete everything.

I have two Windows 7 desktop Pcs, connected via a 4-port router (wired connections).

I can create a Homegroup on both machines, but neither PC can detect the other's Homegroup. So when I try to join the homegroup from either PC I always get the message 'there are no other Homegroups on this network'.

From either computer I also cannot see the other PC listed on the network, even though I have turned on file sharing in advanced sharing options and ensured that the time on both PCs is identical (a Windows troubleshooting 'tip' )

Both PCs have the same account name and the same name on the network - could this be the problem?

P.S. I know all the hardware works fine because I had Vista networked fine on both Pcs.

A:Cannot join Homegroup

Yes. Your problem is same name on network. Change one of them.

I've read several posts about this already but nothing has helped I recently upgraded my vista desktop so I could use HomeGroup with my laptop Both computers are now running Windows Home Premium -bit At the moment they are both plugged into my Belkin Play N Wireless Dual band N router Here's what's going on -I can create a HomeGroup from either computer but neither computer can join it -When I run the troubleshooter on either computer it keeps telling me quot All Homegroup computers must have the correct time quot however both computers do have the correct time and time zone I even tried synching both w the internet time -I tried recreating and joining HomeGroup w all firewalls disabled nothing -I tried recreating and joining HomeGroup w my antivirus software disabled and then uninstalled nothing -I tried reinstalling my router firmware and Can't HomeGroup Join reconfiguring the router based on what a tech told me nothing -I've made sure all the necessary services are running that IPv is enabled and that all the advanced sharing settings are correct nothing -I've verified that both computers are on the same network and it's set Can't Join HomeGroup as quot home quot still NOTHING I've spent wayyyyy too much time trying to figure this stupid thing out So if anyone has any other suggestions please let me know OR if you know a different way to access files through the network other than Homegroup or public folders I am ready to look into other options Thanks in advance for any help

A:Can't Join HomeGroup

hi i am sure some one with a lot more knowledge will be along however i remember reading some where that if your passwords are the same it could cause a problem, maybe you could try a work group instead.
As for the time issue check that your bios time setting and the desktop time's are the same it may pay to check that the router time is correct.

That's all I've got not much i know.

If you desperately need to transfer files or use files you could try a remote desktop something like VNC(free version)
RealVNC - VNC? Free Edition 4.1

Hello all! I have 2 brand new PCs with Win 7 installed, Ultimate on Desktop and Home on Laptop. Desktop is hooked into router, laptop is wireless.

I have created Homegroup on Desktop and tried to join from my laptop but it fails. I have checked the password, reset it 4 times just to be sure. I have made sure the correct home group settings are set on both. I have made sure the 4 services people have mentioned are running correctly. I can share a fold on my desktop and i can get to it from my laptop so i know the connectivity is there... I have also deleted the Homegroup a few times and tried redoing it.

What else should i look at?

thanks!

A:Homegroup - Can't Join

This is what I did to test my homegroup: on my desktop, I created the homegroup. As soon as it was created, I went to my laptop and went to the homegroup page, and was informed that my other computer had created a homegroup, so I clicked on the join button, went through a few screens, typed the password, and everything was shared.

Is that what you did?

I already had a workgroup established, so I haven't tested if it would work with my computers on different workgroups.

Want my Windows 8.1 computer to join my HomeGroup which currently consists of my Win 7 desktop and Win 7 laptop.

In Network and Sharing Center it sees the HomeGroup and says "Available to Join". I try to join by inputting the password and after a minute it says "Windows no longer detects a homegroup on this network...."

Why is this happening? What to do? What is the point of having multiple computers if you can't join them.

I also see that I can't even access the other computer through network. It shows both computers yet when I click on one it says its not accessible, I don't have permissions, etc. I have done nothing to change anything. Why can't I see other computers on my own network? On my two Win 7 computers it was as simple as could be. Why is this Win 8.1 giving me trouble?

Hey everyone!

So I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bits on my computer.

When I go in the control panel, to create a homegroup, it asks me what I want to share, then I click on next, and it says it won't create a homegroup because I need to have Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6) activated.

So I went to the network and sharing center, in the CP, change adapter settings, right-clicked on my connection, clicked on properties, and, yes, IPv6 was on.
So I tried again and it still won't work. I tried turning it off, trying it again then turning it back on again, nothing. I updated my driver for the Ethernet, still won't work.

So I tried creating a homegroup on another computer, it worked, but I can't join on my computer for same reason.

Anyone have this problem?

Haven't heard of that problem but you dont have to use homegroup to network. You can use workgroup. That would also avoid the IPv6 problem because workgroup doesn't need it and workgroup is easier to share.

Hope this helps

Do you need to use the router? When you say you plug it into the wall, does that go to a switch?

Hello Borut, and welcome to Sevenforums

Go into network and sharing center, and on the far left, click "Change advanced sharing settings".
Make sure Network discovery, file and printer sharing, and "Allow windows to manage homegroup connections" are all turned on (you may want to turn on public folder sharing as well).

Additionally, go to Control Panel>Network and Internet>Homegroup and make sure you have selected the things you are willing to share. You can also view the password in this page if you are the host, or you can start the homegroup troubleshooter. Now follow this picture to get to the homegroup join page:

If you still can't, restart the computer and try again. Failing that, update your computer. Failing that, you have a deeper problem.

Does this mean you can't leave the Homegroup on the other networked machines? I'll assume that is the case.

This is another Windows 7 bug apparently so you need to remove some files from the Peer Networking folder in order to fix this problem. This needs to be done on all machines that were in this Homegroup.

The fix for this problem seems to be Deleting all files which reside in PeerNetworking at> C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

In order to see the AppData folder you will need to go into Folder Options in the Control Panel and put a check mark to "Show Hidden Files and Folders".


It's required that you do this on all Homegroup networked machines. Then reboot all machines. You should now be able to leave the old Homegroup and create a new one.

Hey everybody. I have 1 computer. It's a bran new computer with a bran new install of Windows 7 64bit (so all settings are default). I created a homegroup on a home network and Windows had me write down a password. I accidentally left the home group. Whenever I try to create it again, I don't get the create homegroup option, but rather a "Join Homegroup" option. I thought I got rid of it when I left. I typed in my written down password with no luck.

Real quick, how do I get the "create a homegroup" option back instead of the "join homegroup" option?

A:Can't Create Homegroup, Only Join.

The fix for this problem seems to be Deleting the file idstore.sst under C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

There is also a registry adjustment for this problem which should be corrected with the following procedure. This is from Technet.

1. Temporarily disable Firewall and third party antivirus program on the computer for a test.

2. Verify relevant services
=========================
a. Click "Start", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in Search Bar and press Enter.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

b. Right click the "Peer Networking Grouping" service and choose Properties.
c. Please check if the service is started; if not, please click the Start button and see if it works.
d. You may also choose Automatic next to Startup type.
e. Click OK.
f. Please repeat the above steps with another service: PNRP Machine Name Publication Service.

3. Modify IPv6 registry key to enable IPV6
==========================
a. Click Start, type regedit in Search Bar, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.

b. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters

c. Check whether the "DisabledComponents" registry key exists. If so, let's move on the next steps.
d. Double click the "DisabledComponents" registry key and modify the value to 0.

I am having problems with the HomeGroup feature. It simply will not let me join or create a Homegroup. If I try and create the homegroup on this machine it refuses and simply states 'Cannot create a HomeGroup on this computer' All other aspects of networking and file sharing work fine. After running the HomeGroup troubleshooter it identifies the HomeGroup service as not running, but it cannot autofix or switch it on?

A:Cannot Join/Create HomeGroup

Yes. I've given up on this one. Besides I struggle to see the point in a Home network environment. I just have the folders/files I want to access shared and mapped like i always have done int he past.

I have a 3 PC ("Server" and two others) home network.
On my Server, OLDLOCALUSER created a Homegroup in Win7.
I upgraded all 3 PCs from Win7 to Win10.
On my Server, I changed my OLDLOCALUSER to NEWMSACCOUNT.
I also created NEWMSACCOUNT on the two other PCs.
I lost the Homegroup password.
When I try to access the Homegroup from Server or the other 2 PCs, I'm told that OLDLOCALUSER has already created a Homegroup.
How can I remove the Homegroup or join the Homegroup?
I would like to use the Homegroup.

Thanks,
Pete

Are both computers now connected to the same router and therefore have IP addresses in the same Subnet, i.e. you're not connecting one by ethernet to the Modem/Router and the second "wirelessly" to the Router?

G'day,

I have recently tried to create a HomeGroup on my Win 7 Home Premium machine and it is not possible for some reason. When opening the "Network and Sharing" section and then clicking on "HomeGroup", I get a message stating that "This computer can't connect to a HomeGroup". Running the troubleshooter doesn't help. Looking in "Administrative Tools>services", I see two HomeGroup entries; HomeGroup Provider and HomeGroup Listener. Trying to start these services results in error windows popping up. (see below) I also note that there is no HomeGroup icon in my Explorer tree. Can anyone help with this? I thank you up front.







Cheers,

If the Homegroup icon doesn't show up in the network tree then something is pretty messed up here.

Try running the sfc/scannow command from an elevated command prompt and see what it comes up with.

Did you notice that where it says type the Homegroup password?

Where it says: You can get the password from Parents on NEWDELL or another member of the Homegroup?

Wait, if you are the parent at NEWDELL you were locked out of your own system.

Strange problem but it may work to leave the Homegroup from all Homegroup machines then create a new one and rejoin. Windows appears to be treating you like you aren't really in the Homegroup any more.

If you have any problems rejoining then delete all the files at PeerNetworking on each Homegroup machine but I can see you tried that?

If this is a single machine see if you are able to simply leave the Homegroup.

So I go to the second laptop, it is also connected to my wireless internet router (that is set as a home network), and all of the conditions set on my first laptop are the same on this laptop.

I then go to homegroup and it does not give me the join option
Please help

When I click join and it promps for a password, I enter it and it says incorrect password, but it isn't I double and triple checked, I changed it, I copied and pasted it via email from the homegroup computer, nothing works. I have two other acer laptops that I set up the homegroup with and had no problems. I got a new one for my wife and wanted to set it up on the same homegroup, but it won't recognize the password. Ive read a few posts and followed some suggestions, still nothing. Does anyone know what may cause this new computer to not recognize a verified password?

A:Can't join homegroup, password problems!

I think that is the message I got on my Acer netbook until I removed Norton 360...

Do you have a 3rd party firewall on the laptop?

My home pc is running windows 7 ultimate x64 eng, and my laptop is running windows 7 pro x64 eng.
My router is TP-LINK 941ND, both the computer are not connected directly to the router, my home pc uses D-Link adapter.

I'm creating the homegroup on my home pc but cant see the homegroup from my laptop, there is no 'join' button.

I tried disabling anti-virus + firewall (NOD32) on both computers but still no good.
Before disabling firewall I wasn't able to ping the computer from one to the other, after disabling it, pinging was successful.
On both computers I have network discovery on.

In addition I checked all these services, and they were as they should be:
DNS Client - Started and Automatic
Function Discovery Provider Host - Started and Manual
Function Discovery Resource Publication - Started and Automatic
HomeGroup Listener - Started and Manual
HomeGroup Provider - Started and Manual
Network List Service - Started and Manual
Peer Networking Grouping - Started and Manual
Server - Started and Automatic
SSDP Discovery - Started and Manual
UPnP Device Host - Started and Manual

Thanks in advance.


It may work best to uninstall NOD 32 then set up the Homegroup between those machines then reinstall NOD 32.

You might also try setting up the Homegroup using wired connections at first then go to wireless after it's all set up and working.

Other Homegroup problems can be fixed with the guide in the link below.

My desktop is set up for a homegroup in windows 10. When I try to set up my laptop it reads " detected a homegroup" and there is a join tab. When the join tab is clicked it states that a homegroup is not detected. The laptop is set up on the network so what is the problem?

The Windows 8.1 laptop says there is a homegroup on my network, which I started on my Windows 7 PC. I go thru the join now process and use the correct password, then after a minute or so, the laptop says it no longer detects a homegroup on the network. How can I connect?

A:My Windows 8.1 laptop can't join my Windows7 homegroup.

Try this tool from Microsoft to fix your homegroups settings if you haven't tried the homegroup troubleshooter already:

http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9755488

Also make sure you have a good network connection (wired in if possible) when trying to troubleshoot your homegroup issues or access the homegroup until you get it back to work. Wireless networks are exposed to interference and low signal means low speeds which could cause the network to not detect the homegroup device is the device becomes unreacheable.

Try this tool and give us feed back.

You've done a lot of things!

Presumably you have an OK IP no. Can you ping to any other comp and can others ping you.

Have you got any third party AV or Firewalls installed?

Have you tried disabling the firewall?

A:Difficulties connecting desktop(wired) & laptop(wifi) via Homegroup

I am assuming that you can access the interwebs on both machines.

the ping tests you've done, I assume you've starred the last octet out for some reason rather than post them. NB a 192.168.x.x address is private address class, which is just accessible within your LAN and is therefore secure.
the results from the ping looks like it's being blocked by something, Either windows or a third party firewall or your shared wifi router...

how are you getting your IP addresses ? from the IPconfig it's not conclusive, if you add the switch /all to the end of the ipconfig command you will get a bit more information. anyhow, if you've manually entered the IP addresses then maybe the ip address for your desktop machine is already in use on the network....

Firstly, what is your DC running? 2003/R2, 2008? Also make sure your ip configuration is correct for your network and you can ping both the DNS server and the Domain Controller.

Brink,

I really need your help. The last few times that I have booted up I have been "invited" to join a Hone Group with no option to turn them down. Now, via Control Panel I find that I am in at least one home group and that I cannot forbid them to read my files if I don't know their password. I don't know the password or who these people are.

I also seem to have no way to quit the Home Group.

This makes me more unhappy that you can believe. I'm using 64-bit Home Premium. Can you help me?

Gerry

A:"invited" to join a HomeGroup with no option to turn them down

Click on the Homegroup then click on "Leave Homegroup". BTW, the only way you would have joined a Homegroup is by entering in the password, it is not automatic.
