    Accessing other computers on the network...Help!


    I have a couple servers on my network. I re-installed windows on my main desktop yesterday and I can't access the servers now. All the network discovery buttons are checked yes. The network servers are accessible through two other Windows 10 laptops. After some searching on the forum, none of the common fixes seemed to work. Any ideas?

    Can you access the pc if you use the IP instead of name?

    Yes, I can access them via IP on the desktop.

    Are the servers setup to be shared with "everyone" or were they setup with user account access?

    Something is up with the printer too. I can see the printer on the network, it shows ink status, etc, but i cant print from this one computer now also.

    Well, this is another fix floating around, works here.........

    Disable the IPv6 in your adapter.

    At command line: ipconfig /flushdns

    Disable and re-enable the adapter.

    Ill give it a shot this afternoon when i get home from work. Thanks.

    I re installed the printer utility and it works now, so thats good news.

    The irony of all this is that i built a Windows 10 machine last week and its having zero problems.
