Windows 10: Can't see other devices in Network browser after 1803

    Can't see other devices in Network browser after 1803


    I have two machines that were updated to 1803, other than that I have few NVIDIA SHIELDs on the same network.

    On the first Windows machine I took the next steps and devices & computers re-appeared on my network browser. On the second machine no matter what I've tried, the other devices are missing.

    Here's what I've tried so far:

    1. Network reset
    2. Made sure Network Discovery is ON
    3. Uninstalled and reinstalled my SMB 1 stuff from "Windows Features". (Restarted Windows)
    4. Tried:
    pconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    netsh int ip reset
    netsh winsock reset
    5. Read about turning "Function Discovery Resource Publication" on but that wouldn't help in my case as I have non Windows devices that uses SMB that my Windows machine can't see.
    I should add that on the Windows machine that see all the other devices "Function Discovery Resource Publication" is also turned on.

    That's it. Computers and devices aren't seen. I can access them with \\192.... but they are not displayed in the Network Browser.

    I've read all about Microsoft removing homegroup in 1803 but because I made it work on one machine I hoped it would also work on the other.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'll assume that you have you P2P workgroup set up correctly with shares and the Security taps set with the proper permissions?
    I'll link you to this thread it covers all the different things that need to set correctly. Computers can't see each other after upgrade to 1803 Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    BTW I have 4 computers 3 on 1803 and one on 8.1 SMB 1 is turned off on all. They all communicate with each other and show up in computer/drives list and devices so it is possible

    Thanks. I've gone through that thread without success. I can't turn off SMB 1 as my streamers around the house relay on it.
