I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router connected to an Acer laptop through a Linksys extender WRE54G. I also have a Dell netbook connected to the WRT54GS without the extender.I have Homegroup set up on both computers. I can access the Net book from The Acer on the extender with Homegroup but I can not access the Acer on the Extender from the net book which is not on the extender. I can ping both computers and both show up on my network view with each computer. Is there a setting I am missing?

This is just a guess, but make sure IPv6 is enabled on each laptop and that each network connection is set to the "Home" location.

If you open your start menu,open getting started list then select "share with a home group" make sure to select the libraries you want to share on each computer then save your changes,in addition their is some good tutorials if you click on Discovering Windows 7 at the top of the list, they may help you solve your problem :huh:
