Windows 10: Windows 10 cannot see ANY machines on home LAN

    Windows 10 cannot see ANY machines on home LAN


    Hi there

    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
    and check
    Use User Accounts and passwords to connect to other computers

    Hi there

    Tried your suggestions - No difference

    Here's example -- one Linux and 2 W10 machines currently up and running on my LAN - both W10 pro X-64

    Linux sees W10 machines - Linux machine is Gylfi running Centos 7 -- the other two are W10.

    Access to either W10 machine and the Windows shares on either windows machine from Centos (Linux) no problem.

    W10 Machines don't even show a SINGLE computer -- all sharing and networking discovery enabled --even with Firewall off for testing.

    The W10 machines though show devices such s chromecast or servers - squeezebox (Logitech media server) and Plex.

    Grhhhhhh!!!

    Anyway something to do on a rainy / snowy cold Sunday. !!!

    Here's the screenshots -- computer Gylfi is the Linux one the other two are Windows 10.
