    Minecraft scanning for games on local network not working

    The only game I have had trouble with is Minecraft (Mojang version not Win 10)scanning for games on local network not working.
    My desktop is an ethernet connection to an actiontec MI424-WR Rev I
    All other laptops on wireless connection can see each other. I even tried one of the laptops on Ethernet using my ethernet cable and it still works.
    I can direct connect i.e for example.

    Here's what I have tried.
    - all computers are using the same version of Minecraft 1.11
    - checked firewall entries. Turned off firewall.
    - Tried port forwarding. Except this doesn't make sense because all the other laptops are connected to same router and they work without the forced port forwarding.
    - Took an empty disk drive and did a clean install of Windows 10 pro and then tried Minecraft. Scanning for games on local network does NOT WORK.
    - I have uninstalled malwarebytes and admuncher and turned off Windows defender.

    Where do I go from here? All my steam games work. Maybe minecraft just doesnt work for some computers?

    I find that inviting users on your local network works. So long as each user owns a copy and has a different Xbox account logged into windows 10.

    I'm talking about the original Minecraft version NOT Windows 10 Minecraft beta.
