    I did the network reset on the 1803 computer. Sigh.

    It does not see ANY computers. It does see some other stuff (printer/scanner, bluray player, router). I've only been running the 4 computers, as listed in post 1. Each one has been signed out from the Homegroup.


    Not one of the 4 computers can see any other one anymore.


    This does not strike me as progress.
    I didn't know if his fix would work for you or not. I had already ran the reset and it didn't break my sharing/network. I wouldn't have done all 4 computers at once. I mean it is up to you totally but getting one that works right before taking down others seemed best.

    Anyway, if you have taken them from the Homegroup, we have to find a way to get those shares working. I assume you have been through all the Private Network, sharing options, NTFS permissions. The services should run properly on 1709 so that is not the issue. Check that they are all on the same WORKGROUP to start.

    If you can bring a laptop next to the desktop you are using. Let's try to get one working then you apply the changes to all.

    EDIT: Confirmed through a friend. Please do check the two services as well in 1709.

    iamc3k,

    Sorry I didn't read the entire topic. I thought you were having an 1803 network problem. For the oddball things happening to your 1709 or earlier machines, try this on one of them:

    1) Go to Action Center All settings and type in a search for power. Select the one for "Choose a power plan".
    2) On the left side of the window which opens, select Choose what the power buttons do.
    3) On the Define power.... page which opens, select Change settings which are currently unavailable.
    4) UNCHECK the box for Turn on fast start (recommended).
    5. Save the changes and then power off the computer using the Windows command not the power switch.
    6. Turn it back on and maybe some of your problems will be solved.

    When fast start is turned on, the machine will only do a hibernate (it is powered off but the current Windows kernel is being saved on your hard drive and loaded when booting). If you turn off fast start, a clean Windows 10 will be loaded when the machine is turned back on.

    Most of the time it doesn't matter and the speed boost when booting up is nice to have. But, it can occasionally cause you some problems. Let me know if it helps.

    @iamc3k I believe you know how to setup sharing but I am going to post these as a check list for you to make sure the 1709 is setup properly.

    Turn On or Off Network Discovery in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Turn On or Off File and Printer Sharing in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Turn On or Off Password Protected Sharing in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Once you have made sure all services and settings are correct on the 1709 machine, reboot it and check if the sharing works. If not please post back so we can take further steps.

    Gents,

    I am NOT ignoring your advice or disappearing. My work has called and I must go. I will return to this issue(s) on Monday.

    I greatly appreciate the assistance I'm receiving. I'm sure this mess can be sorted. I'm happy to start with the most basic of approaches and eliminate all the possibilities which are preventing this LAN from working with Windows 10's networking.

    Thanks, and I'll report back on Monday.

    Cheers,
    Ken

    Thanks. Everyone gets busy some times and I figured that was the case.

    I will try to be here to answer when you are back.
