    Lost Network Visibility [v1803]


    Hi there! Sorry if my english is broke, I am just trying hard to explain on all of my powers.

    I am having a heck of a problem on my office right now, the office consists of 8 Windows 10 PC's (v1709), 1 Windows 7 PC and the one that caused a problem 1 Windows 10 (1803)

    The problem is, all of the other computers can see each other on the Network (HomeGroup), but not on the 1 W10 1709 and the W10 1803. Other just work like they are as before. This happened after that 1 W10 updates to 1803, and now it can't access the 1 W10 1709. And as per as 1803 HomeGroup is removed, I would like to get a a clear solution maybe to this problem, to include the network consists of FAX and Printers shared on all PC's.

    If anyone can give a idea or solution, I will appreciate it so much. Thanks you and sorry again for my English.

    If you know the IP of the computer you want to connect to try this in file explorer.

    Code:
    \\192.168.x.x
    Then right click on the folder you want and select Map drive, Or just click on it to open it.

    Thanks for this! Also I did the other thing on the threads here about the "Function Discovery Provider Host" and "Function Discovery Resource Publication".

    I hope other people like me having the same problem be solved by using this methods. Much appreciated!

    It also helps if you make sure all your computers network setting's is set to Private, Windows has a nasty habit of switching to Public every once in a while, It does not happen to me very often but it's always surprising by the time I figure out that that was the problem.
