    Windows 10 Network Alternative?


    so are there any 3rd party software alternatives to windows networking or even hardware alternatives, something that i can use to network my windows 10 machines that will actually work reliably?

    i have 3 windows 10 machines (1 home edition, 2 pro) on a family network and the network always fails for one reason or another, networked pcs will disappear from view... oddly, the home edition machine is the only one that is always visible on all three machines, at all times, nothing can shake it (windows updates, outages, etc.) it just always works.

    at this point i'm not at all interested in troubleshooting my network, i've done that ad nauseam for years and years, instead i'm just looking / hoping for an alternative to windows built-in networking.

    thanks in advance.

    What network function do you want to use? If its file sharing FTP server can be low memory and work great

    What about if you hit start, run \\servername\sharename? I've been running windows networking at home for 20 years and it's been totally reliable for me.

    I never go into the network browser to find anything.
