    G75VW disconnects from Homegroup when using Wi-Fi

    I have been having problems for a while with my homegroup and just end up leaving and joining to correct problems. But recently I noticed that my G75VW disconnects or will not join when I unplug the ethernet cable and run on wifi. I am running now on the stock BBK5 model wireless card.

    Running Windows 7 - Ultimate 64-bit SP!

    you mean when you unplug cabale, your wifi can not access to router?
    if yes, could you try difference channel with wifi card and also check you router?
    did you try connect to other router like friend house, school?

    SOLVED!

    No. When I was using the wired LAN, I could connect and see all my computers that are set up to share files using Windows Homegroup. When I disconnected the wired LAN and connected to my local network via the Wi-Fi adapter, I could not see or share files on the Homegroup. However, I was able to solve the problem, the default setting for "Adhoc 11n" in the Advanced Properties setting was set to "Disable". When I changed it to "Enable" , I was able to see and connect to the other Homegroup computers just fine!

    Thanks for bringing this up, I´ve had this issue for a while. I´ll try and test your fix out, once I get home.
    Have to make the homegroup first with wired connection, right ?
