    Because ... having the same Workgroup is NOT enough. You have to implement the sharing options indicated in the linked thread.

    Make sure the workgroup is named "WORKGROUP" if you are going to use standard network sharing. Then in Security permissions for the folders you want to share, you have to change to "Everyone". You can get more info from EZLAN.NET for Windows networking.

    Just did this. Made my Win7 share - You may have to explicitly right-mouse click on the folder you are sharing, then in the context menu click on Share With.

    If that doesn't work, make sure that all of your firewall programs allow homegroup networking. To see if this is the problem, shut off your firewalls completely, then retry.
