    I have 2 Computers and they both have windows 7 on them, Network discovery is on. I can see them if I click on "Network" link, but if I click on the "Homegroup" link no pc's show up even though they are all in a homegroup.

    Have you set file sharing to on, and then share a folder by right clicking on the folder, select sharing, then share this folder. Do this on both computers, then reboot and check again.

    Try turning off your filewalls. Are you using a hub or a switch to connect the two computers? Also try checking you network cables. That's all I can think of.

    I noticed if you go to the start menu in Windows 7if you go to the top it says "Getting Started" Then you can choose "Share with Homegroup" and go from there.

    yep..... it also gives you a onetime password that you need to enter to enable homegroup sharing
