    Windows 10 Homegroup

    Trying to connect my laptop to my PC. I can get the laptop to see the PC (Join Now is available). However when I join and put the password in it goes on for several minutes trying to connect and then says the homegroup is no longer available (which it is).
    Here's the rub: The PC is wired via Lan to the modem. The laptop is plugged into a wireless router which is wired to the modem. I tried turning connecting both computers to the same wireless network (so now both computers are connected via Lan and via wireless). I've tried everything I can find on these forums. Please help

    update...when i wire both to the same modem it works. so it must be an issue with the wireless connection.
