Cannot See Local Home Network
Posted on 2015-01-21
I've got two computers running Windows 7 that are wired together on a network with a Linksys Router.
On Computer #1, I can see Computer #2. But, on Computer #2 I can't see Computer #1. That tells me that I'm correctly wired and that the router is working.
Now, when I go into the Networking and Sharing Center using the Control Panel on Computer #2 it looks like the setup defines the network as "Network 4 Public network - Access type: Internet, Connections: blank". I think this should say "Network 2 Home network - Access type: Internet, Connections: Local Area Connection".
The question is: How do I change the network on Computer #2 to a local area network (i.e., HomeGroup)? I can't figure it out.
I DO NOT have a wireless setup. Everything is hardwired.
