Windows 7 Homegroup not working

Post by darmstrong67 » Sun Oct 10, 2010 7:32 am

I installed the Ooma the other day and got it working with little difficulty. All my pc's (2 wired desktops and 2 wireless laptops) receive internet connection so I thought I was good to go. But then I noticed that they were not connecting to each other. The Homegroup is not recognizing that there are other computers on the network.

My setup is:

AT&T U-Verse Internet -->
AT&T U-Verse modem/router -->
Ooma -->
Switch -->
2 Desktop PCs, 1 Sprint Air Rave (cell phone booster), 1 network printer

I have 2 laptops wirelessly connected to the AT&T U-Verse Modem/Router.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the homegroup see each pc?

Connect the switch to the AT&T U-Verse modem/router and leave the Home port of Ooma empty.
You only need a computer connected to the Ooma Home port if you need to access the Ooma setup page.
