Windows 10: Home network issue - one pc cannot be accessed from all others

    That's interesting about the HomeGroup Listener and HomeGroup Provider, but hey whatever works ... as it sure seems MS does a good job of making simple file sharing ... not so simple

    I think the main reason I don't have any network sharing issues is that I've always used my Routers (old netgear wndr4000) USB File Sharing. This makes my router the SMBv1 Server/Master Browser and only need the SMBv1 Client (along with SMBv2 Server/Client) running on my Win10 PC's. I also did the registry hack for the Browser > MaintainServerList = No, which keeps my Win10 PC's from trying to be the Master Browser ... When SMBv1 goes away for good, I'll have to buy a new router

    Here are what my SMB Settings look like....

    FeatureName : SMB1Protocol
    State : Enabled
    FeatureName : SMB1Protocol-Client
    State : Enabled
    FeatureName : SMB1Protocol-Server
    State : Enabled
    FeatureName : SMB1Protocol-Deprecation
    State : Disabled

    EnableSMB1Protocol : False
    EnableSMB2Protocol : True

    SERVICE_NAME: mrxsmb10
    STATE : 4 RUNNING
    START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
    SERVICE_NAME: mrxsmb20
    STATE : 4 RUNNING
    START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
    SERVICE_NAME: browser
    STATE : 1 STOPPED
    START_TYPE : 3 DEMAND_START
    SMB1 : 0
    SMB2 : 1
    DependOnService : {bowser, mrxsmb20, nsi}

    Here are a couple of share connections and their dialect ...
    ServerName ShareName Dialect
    ---------- --------- -------
    DESKTOP ShareFiles 3.1.1 <- SMBv3
    SHARE ShareDrive 1.5 <- SMBv1 (Router USB File Share)

    I know it's crazy but....that's the way it is. I could not get my networking to work on any W10 machine without those Homegroup services enabled! This was checked and rechecked multpile times buy enabling, then disabling, restarting inbetween etc. Microsoft sure seem to have made a mess of this feature.

    There is a possibility of some sort of conflict with different router models i suppose?

    Anything is possible, but I don't think so. I guess, an exception would be that your router has USB File Sharing or Media Server (DLNA) ... then it has some version of SMB and if enabled might could be an issue.

    My experience is the same. my Router Asus U68 it does have USB support turn off and Through it all, I did notice
    1. My wife's 8.1 Pro never lost connection to any of the computers she has an Account on.
    2 All my media devices connected Smart TV DirecTV DVRs, BR player, Printers were showing up.

    Its beginning to look like I'm going to have to set and a full server-client network, it seems MS does not want us to have a P2P network and they have dropped the HomeGroup Scheme. I fully refuse to use One Drive or any of that cloud crap. Each of my computers has a purpose and do not share software or desktops and do share and back up each other for some files.
    At the same time, I can't keep spending hours every time WU screws up my Network.

    Thanks for letting me jump into your all's thread I have been experiencing the same issue so I thought I could add something to it while getting my own system up and running again.

    We certainly can't be the only ones experiencing this issue?
