Hi guys...I'm new here so please be patient :o
Due to the growing number of network devices in my home these days, I felt that it was time to expand my network to the upper part of the house. I now have an ADSL connection to downstairs, plugged into a 4 port WiFi modem router from my ISP. This router connects a HTPC, Tivo and PS3 via ethernet. The fourth ethernet connections runs upstairs to a remote part of the house where it plugs into the "internet" port of a Cisco wrt610N wifi router. This router hosts connections to another PC and PS3. Downstairs router handles DHCP to its devices (range 10.0.0.1-10.0.0.254) and the upstairs router manages its own IP range (192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.154 - i think??).
After much stuffing around, all devices connected to both routers now have full access to the interweb and all systems are AOK.
My only remaining issue is that the downstairs HTPC running Windows 7 Home Premium can not see the upstairs PC also running Windows 7 Home Premium. Both are set to home network but neither can see the other.
If however, I run "network and sharing centre" one of the options allows me to shows devices on "all networks" and the other PC is seen there - But I see no way of connecting the two via homegroup.
Both PCs are running McAfee firewall.
ps Both PCs connected fine before I introduced the second router.
Any suggesions to help me resolve my homegroup issue ???:shock:
