    Home network has disappeared from network list

    I have two devices connected to my home wireless network, my phone and my laptop. Recently my network has disappeared from the laptop's list of networks. This did not happen with my phone, which works fine. By disappeared I mean my home network cannot be discovered by my laptop. This is not a connection issue because I cannot find the network to connect to. I do not have this problem with any other wireless network. I followed the various command prompts suggested by Microsoft's troubleshooting guide (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...nection-issues). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Two different OS's is why your phone works and computer does not. Microsoft tightened up the restrictions on unsecured networks. It is just a simple fix to get it to work. See this for doing the fix. Cannot Connect to CIFS / SMB / Samba Network Shares Shared Folders in Windows 10 - Tech Journey
