    Can't Access Network Shared Folders With Android Phone Connected WIFI

    5 PCs Connected to Local Network:
    1- Win10 Home - V.1511 10586.545
    2- Win10 Pro - V.1511 10586.545
    2- Win10 Pro - v.1607 14393.105

    Win10 v.1511 Home, 2 - Win10 Pro V.1511, and 1- Win10 Pro v.1607 are all hard wired Ethernet.

    1- Win10 Pro V1607 connected via WIFI (5ghz)

    All Network shares are set, Password Protected Sharing is turned off, on all systems. All PCs open/view/share folders and files as expected between all PCs.

    Before install Anniversary Update on 2 PCs, I could Copy files from my Mot Android Turbo 2 phone (connected via WIFI (5GHZ or 2.4Ghz) using Asus File Manager Ap, to any shared PC folders on my network.

    After Installing AU 1607 on 2 of the PCs on my network, I can now only copy file to my Windows Home V.1511 PC. All others are requesting User and Passwords for access. Again, Password Protected Sharing is turned off on all PCs....
