Windows Homegroup Hell

I just setup Win7 on two comps. One is a netbook running Starter edition, the other is my workstation running Pro.

I created the homegroup on my Pro workstation and joined my netbook to it.

I then shared some things on both machines.

Something odd is happening…

I can see the homegroup on my netbook, and the files shared on the Pro workstation.

I can NOT see the homegroup at all from the Pro workstation, even though it’s the one hosting it!

WTF??? Help please?

NOTES: static ips in the same class c ip range (.2 and .42), no conflicts, same workgroup, different comp names.

Is the netbook sharing anything?
