    yes. I try to connect WiFi without intel Proset and using windows default setting, but nothing changed.
    If the driver isn't a WHQL Windows driver that may be a problem here. The Windows driver will show up at Windows update or may automatically install if you try. Other than that I can't think of a good reason for Homegroup sharing not to work using the wireless connection.

    Have you tried leaving the Homegroup on both machines then create a new one from the machine with the wireless connection and join the new Homegroup from the machine with the wired connection?

    Dear chev65 thanks for your help.
    finally, no one of the solutions works for me. I have to use the network that windows automatically setup for me between PC and Loptop.
    again thanks for your responsibility.

    Yes I've never seen quite this same problem before and I've been working on Homegroup problems for nearly 5 years on both the Windows 7 and 8 forums.

    The bigger problem I see is that certain Intel chipsets seem to have problems joining a Homegroup but I've personally never seen a problem sharing with a wireless connection although I'm pretty sure there are other factors involved here which I can't see.
