Windows 10: Home Network Issue

  1.    19 Dec 2017 #1

    Home Network Issue

    I have 4 computers set up to Network in my House and Garage. They are named:
    They all run Windows 10, 64 bit, except for WIN7 that is 32 bit.

    When all 4 are on and I look at my Network I see only 3 Computers not 4. All 4 show the WIN7 and WIN8 computers.
    The WIN7, WIN8 and Shuttle show Shuttle, the WIN10 computer shows WIN10.

    Two questions here ...

    1) Why don't I show all 4 computers instead of the 3 ?

    2) I assume some setting on the WIN10 computer is wrong, but I have checked Drive Sharing and Network Advanced
    Settings and all 4 match.

    Any ideas ?

    thanks and Happy Holidays,

    Bet your running Windows 10 Creators Edition.

    By default, Windows latest editions turn off SMB 1.0. Machines that use NetBOS as a discovery method will not show up in Windows Explorer on these machines and NetBIOS discovery machines will not be able to view a Win 10 machine.

    The Solution is to turn on SMB 1.0 in Apps and Fetures - Programs and Features (under Related settings)- Turn Windows features on or off (left margin). Scrolll down and check SMB 1.0/CIFS file and print sharing.

    I found Apps and Features but I don't see Related Settings anywhere. Where is it hidden ?

    BTW, the computer I am now using (WIN7) was updated as were 2 of the other three. I will try to get
    the last one updated.

    Hey w1ksz,
    To check if SMBv1 is still installed on your Win10 machines ...
    Control Panel > Programs & Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off > SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support
    Note: I would not check the SMB 1.0/CIFS Automatic Removal box

    See links below for more info ...
