    Unable to see network location

    Hi everyone,
    I have a USB drive connected to my TP-LINK Archer VR600 router.
    I've successfully set this drive as a network location on my laptop (running windows 10) with no issues whatsoever.
    However, when trying to do the exact same thing on my desktop PC, I'm unable to see drive on my network at all.
    I've tried switching to a static IP, tried connecting the PC using both wired and wireless connections and made sure the network settings are identical on both machines but had no luck.
    When the laptop is on, I can see it on my network as well as other device connected to the router (phones, TV, printer, etc), just not the drive.

    The router (with the drive) shows up just fine.

    Same exact network, no router. Everything else works fine.

    Any ideas?

    HI trexmkii. Welcome to the TenForums @trexmkii

    A number of members have reported not being able to see all devices on network after the implementation of V1803. I would apply this change to all 1803 machines.

    This solution was originally discovered by Access Denied.

    Right click Start, click Run
    Type services.msc, enter
    Scroll down and find these two entries
    Function Discovery Provider Host
    Function Discovery Resource Publication
    Right click on each service above, click properties
    Change Start Up type to Automatic (Delayed Start)
    In the service Status box click start
    Click Apply
    Click OK

    You should see your boxes under network.
