Having upgraded numerous Windows 7 home based systems, I found the network seems to default to a “public network”.
That is hunky-dory if you are in a coffee shop or airport, but home based businesses should be set to a “private network”.

Click on Network & Internet:
Scroll down to Advanced options and Click on it. It will take you to this setting:
Turn ON – Make this PC discoverable.
This is the How – To for wireless connections.
