Hey There!


I recently just returned from a year in Australia, before I left.. (almost a year ago to the day), everything was working perfectly fine and I had 3 computers linked to a homegroup that were able to communicate fine, I have come back to find that this is no longer the case, the only thing that has changed in my network setup is the router.


Currently I am running the follow operating systems on my computers setup via Sky Broadband's Sagem router, the operating systems used on the computers are as follows

  • Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)

The computer using Windows 7 Ultimate is my main computer and a fresh install of windows so I have started a new homegroup on it and would like to give the other two computers access to this homegroup but they do not detect it...


Seemingly when I go into the network center and check the adapter settings it says that all three computers are running on a different network


My main computer just says "Network" and my other two computers say "Network 2" and "Network 3"...


Also I have noticed that on one of the computers using Home Premium that network discovery wont stay turned on :(


I don't know if this is significant or why its the case but I would sure appreciate some help in fixing it! :D
