I have been trying for a couple of hours to set up a home network
between a computer running 7 and one running 8. I looked online
to see what came up when I searched=
"Windows cannot set up a home network on this computer".
I found several responses saying 7 can only talk to 7.
Does anyone know if there is a way for 7 to talk to 8?

Hello squareorbit,
Do you mean that you want to use the Windows 7 and 8 to create and join a homegroup?
Do you use Windows 7 or Windows 8 to create the homegroup?
Based on my test, I can use the Windows 7 and Windows 8 in homegroup.
As you get the message ‘Windows cannot set up a home network on this computer’,
Please take the following steps for troubleshooting:
1. Download and run the fix it wizard
2. Change your network location to Home network
3. Check if you start the service Peer Networking Grouping
and HomeGroup Provider
For more information, please take a look at the following article.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-hk/windows7/why-cant-i-create-a-homegroup
Please refer to the following article to create a HomeGroup in Windows 8.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-HK/windows/homegroup-help#homegroup-start-to-finish=windows-81&v1h=win81tab2&v2h=win7tab1
Then you could make Windows 7 join the HomeGroup.
