    Fixed network visibility issues, but I do not know exactly why

    I have been experiencing the same issues as many with NAS's and Computers not visible on the network view. Mine is fixed, but I am not sure why.

    Due to a notification to update my ASUS router firmware I had difficulty finding the new firmware and started reloading old versions in attempt to find one that would auto-update the new firmware. No luck on that route so I reloaded a slightly older version which prevented web access to find the router setup page. No problem as I reinstalled a copy of the ASUS router discovery software. Success with this and performed router firmware upgrade which at one point involved resetting the router back to it's default settings. I then adjusted the router settings to my liking and left the router UPNP setting "on". This allows me to see the router device on the Network view. Opened up Network and was surprised to see all of my devices, computers and NAS's. Rebooted a few times to make sure this was not a one time fluke. All is well.

    Speculation of the fix?
    - Router UPNP on?
    - Router firmware or reset to defaults?
    - Running the ASUS router discovery software?

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    What you are talking about is not a widespread issue as you think that it is. It is caused by the last rollout, when Microsoft decided to lock down SMB/CIFS, by making SMB 1 & 2 not working as it did in the past.

    Has nothing to do with your router.

    Some network devices have fixed the problem on their own. If you are running third party Security software, an update could have solved it.
