    Help Please:  How do I get Homegroup through the McAfee Firewall

      I have 2010 Internet Security, which has been upgraded by Bt with their free 'netsafe' Mcafee.    I have problems now with my home network, it says my BT Home Hub is 'hidden' but it is not, I have check the hub web page and it is not hidden.   My troubleshooter seems to think it is because of a McAfee Firewall.

       

      I have the BT Mcafee on both computer which cannot connect.

          Hello there,

           

          Are you able to connect to the howgroup when the firewall is disabled . That is  a step worth tryring  as McAfee firewall by default does not block home groups .

          Steps to disable McAfee firewall ;

          1. Double-click the M icon in your taskbar.
          2. Click Web and Email Protection .
          3. Select Firewall. & then settings
          4. Click Turn Off.
          5. Select the time for the confirmation window (15, 30, 45, 60 minutes, When I restart, or Never), then click Turn Off.

           

           

          Regards,
