I am having a problem networking my desktop and laptop computers. Both are 64-bit Windows 8.1 machines. Normally my laptop is connected to the network by Wi-Fi and the desktop by Ethernet. Until I had to refresh my desktop computer due to a virus, everything worked. After the refresh the two machines can't connect over the network even though both can communicate with the internet. I found that if I connect the laptop by Ethernet everything works. In the Network and Sharing Center on both machines, Network Discovery is on, File and Printer sharing is on and Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections is on. I am baffled. Does anybody have any suggestions?
