    Ermmm, where are the files stored? Server or one of the machines you listed?

    Should be easy enough to help you through the forum, you may not need a help site.

    Why do all my files say they're shared in file explorer?

    Windows 7 File Sharing between computers, PROBLEMS!!

    Just do a file transfer in explorer from one computer to the other and see what speed you get. I would suggest avoiding homegroup and using a proper network setup instead.
