Setting Up a Homegroup for Two Windows 8.1 PCs

  RegScriv 18:23 28 Dec 2013

I'm trying to set up a Homegroup between my wife's pc and mine, both on Windows 8.1. My wife's pc clearly shows she has joined a Homegroup and she has a Homegroup password. On my pc, which has been upgraded from Windows 7, (might be relevant) I cannot get it to join the Homegroup. When I put in the password a dialogue box comes up saying that Windows no longer detects a homegroup and to check my network. Checking my network comes up with nothing that works. The two pcs are connected via a BT Infinity router via ethernet cables. Can anyone help.
