Windows 10: Windows 10 cannot see ANY machines on home LAN
Windows 10 cannot see ANY machines on home LAN
After latest W10 updates W10 computers can't see ANY other machines on my LAN.
2 Linux Machines, one W7, one XP and 2 W10 machines on a LAN.
Linux easily sees ALL computers and can access shared folders.
W7 and XP machines see All machines - Wndows and Linux. XP needs 128 bit encryption altered - no problem here though.
I've got both IVP4 and Ivp6 enabled.
W10 machines ONLY see their OWN individual machine -- nothing else -- not a sauasage.
The W10 machines can access PLEX and Logitech media servers running on Linux / Windows machines but the computers are missing.
Seriously MS Windows networking seems hosed up BIG TIME.
Note all these computers are on WIRELESS connections -- my Wireless speed is pretty good so not a problem for what I need.
C'mon ms - why is Windows Networking always a bit of hit and miss -- I've been using SAMBA on Linux for years and have never found any problem with Networking.
W7 is pretty good too (usually although I've had the odd rogue machine where networking seems to fail even though hardware and software is identical to another machine on network. W10 though while good in other things brings a whole slew of difficulty to networking. I shudder to think of what happens when I install a decent NAS this year.
What can I say? My NAS is out for warranty replacement so all my win 10 shares are OK with the SMB1 forced.
But, when the NAS comes back online........................
Silence is supposed to be golden but with MS and networking, it sure is not.
This is how I fixed my problem with 2 win10 computers and 1 win7 computer not seeing each other.
Only do this step with the win10 computers
sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled
Try the following. On every computer in the workgroup go to:
Settings->Network & Internet->Ethernet->Change Advanced Sharing Options
Use User Accounts and passwords to connect to other computers

I'm creating images for several computers with different hardware.
The settings and applications should be the same on all machines, the only thing that really differs is the drivers needed.

MS recently revealed Windows Hello, which uses biometric information to authenticate users. I am interested in this feature (and am starting to look around at new laptops since mine is dying). Now, Windows Hello will require hardware that can read...
